photography, sports, music, walking the dog 'susie', jogging, travelling, movies, dining out, cooking and cups of tea.
From leaving school I worked in the printing industry and I am now a sports coach at a primary school. I love all kinds of music and am a massive fan of the sadly departed 'Johnny Cash' and his wife 'June Carter Cash'. I also love to watch 'horse racing', as well as English football and athletics. I use to be a member of Blackpool and Preston athletic clubs and competed in a total of eight marathons and my greatest achievement was to finish 67th out of 800 runners in the Leeds Marathon back in 1987 with a time of 2hrs 52mins, which I was very pleased with. I am a member of a walking club and just recently joined a local photographic club. I use to use film until early last year. Now I am digital I use the new canon EOS 550DSLR. It is very good, but my moan is trying to keep the lenses clean from bits of tiny particuls. I just never seem to get my lenses perfectly clean. I seem to get great photos when walking the dog 'susie' along the beach at Cleveleys near Blackpool, Lancashire, England. And also when I am with the walking club up in the English Lake District. I love to take photos of everything and anything. Whatever catches my imagination, then thats the photo I will go for. Good luck to everyon else around the world. -ps-
When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
My own personal TOP PICTURES for 2011 are:- 1st - LONE RIG (Photograph, Nov 16th). ****** 2nd - LONE FLOWER (Mixed Media, Oct 28th).

dollvr713 : I didn't post for over a year. I've just finished my second knee replacement surgery and have not been doing any photography for some time. I'm going to post a few older ones that I have worked on for the next few months until I can get out to capture some new material.

A very big THANK YOU for the twenty-one (21) votes from Artists who voted for my picture MULTI COLORED WHEEL in the LIGHT TRAILS CONTEST. It was a wonderful surprise with it being my first ever win, after previously only having two seconds and quite a few unplaced efforts. My commiseration goes out to the other lovely pictures from the other 19 artists in the competition, especially the stunning street picture called City Lights by jhphotos who came second just two votes behind my own picture with 19 votes. 3rd went to Light trails from fire by Old Redeye - 13 votes and 4th was Exploding into Christmas by pictures - 11 votes (the one I voted for). A MERRY CHRISTAMAS TO ALL ON FAN ART REVIEW AND FAN ART STORY AND A VERY HAPPY NEW 2012 YEAR AND A PROSPEROUS ONE FOR EVERYONE! digitalscud. lol.

I shall be thinking of all you good Americans on your very sad day of 9/11 and the 2,977 civilians who lost their lives that day, ten years ago to this very day. God bless! digitalscud.
September 10 at 10:52PM
digitalscud : Sadly 67 Britains (innocent civilians) also died in New York, the day of 9/11.
September 11 at 4:09PM
digitalscud : I AM NOT AMERICAN, WHEN I COME FROM LANCASHIRE, BORN AND BRED AND PROUD OF IT. THERE ARE 'CRETINS' AS YOU CALL THEM, THAT RUN ALL COUNTRIES THAT THINK THEY ARE POWERFUL AND LIKE TO THROW THEIR WEIGHT AROUND, WE ARE NO EXCEPTION, SEEING THAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR MANY HUNDREDS OF YEARS.

dodgement : Hi Digi
Yes Dolls a Doll, I do not know how she finds the time to write her great reviews,
I am thinking of sticking the thing about 5's in my notes each time I post a pic. I have said to Tom that it requires the rules right next to the review box, but nothing has been done, Maybe if a few people complain, It may get done.Its usually new members who have not posted anything.
I had a look at your aircraft pics, Nice, I like to crop as close as I can with mine although I have some with smoke that will be an exception.I took over 1000 pics at the Bournemouth show. I post some aircraft on Aircraft Data .com. Problem is they want a G-0000 reg, and its difficult with military planes.
