I love taking photographs. I really like how the advent of digital photography has given us the ability the snap away without having to worry about running out of film, or the cost of developing. It makes it so much easier to learn techniques, experiment and try different things out.
The quality of cameras in phones is now fantastic and means that whenever a good moment for a photo comes up, you can capture a great shot in just a few seconds.
When I was putting together the artwork for Parkview, I had a great time going through all photos I have taken over the years and selecting the ones that I wanted to use. I have been lucky enough to to visit some wonderful places in the world.
Lots of people have asked me about the different photographs, where and when they were taken and so on. So here are some details about each one.
