Ask me anything   You can find me also find me on Livejournal and Dreamwidth.

Nice to meet you all.

I dabble in photography hence I chase around the English countryside with my Nikon in my hand.

Photography is my passion. I love to take photographs which are primarily what this journal is for. I love history, I adore exploring somewhere new, visiting museums and places of interest.

I am extremely fiercely proud of my home city of Nottingham so do not be surprised to see many entries relating to my county.

I am completely loopy and whatever you do, don't ever, ever, ever, ever, ever let me near a coffee shop, a book store or shoe shop unless you are prepared to have an hour wasted

As tomorrow is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Europe, I thought I might get into the spirit of things and I have created another video this time for the 1940’s Knees Up at Brewhouse Yard, Nottingham.

Lest We Forget

The National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas, near Lichfield, in Staffordshire, England is a national site of remembrance.

The Arboretum honours the fallen and recognises the service and sacrifice and fosters pride in our country.

The idea for the Arboretum was conceived by David Childs in 1988.
He believed that it would form a living tribute to service men and women
for future generations to reflect upon and enjoy.

The Arboretum was officially opened on 16 May 2001. It is aregistered charity and is part of The Royal British Legion family of charities.

This slideshow is my tribute to this wonderful centre of remembrance and to those who have served and sacrificed for the United Kingdom.

It’s a very beautiful place.

Yes it is. I hope l did it justice
