I’m not a photographer by any stretch, but I do enjoy taking photographs for fun and I’m learning a lot through doing that more often.

I use an ordinary compact camera – a Panasonic Lumix TZ10 – and when I don’t have that with me, I use the camera on my mobile phone.

I’d love to progress to a DSLR eventually, but my skills simply don’t warrant that sort of investment right now.  I’ve only just progressed from using the ‘Auto’ function for every shot, so too many bells and whistles would be wasted on me.

I took part in photography challenges in 2011 and 2012.
