"Tales from a small Town" richard4's Profile
Born a long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away called England, not to be confused with the UK as it is different.
ANYWAY to continue-
General interests would include Photography,and have over time gone through quite a few cameras, good and cheapos, currently use a Pentax MZ60 SLR, which if truth be told is a very reliable but low end SLR, a Nikon F80 SLR and a Digital Pentax Optio 50, 5 megapixel camera, which in truth is rubbish but has it's moments, and now a Panasonic DMC TZ3 digital, the blue version.
Those interested may visit my Webshots.com webpages,
(the link to them is at the top of this page)where I have over 1,800 plus pictures on display covering my recent holidays plus other bits and bobs.
Sporting interest- I'm from Leicestershire so I'm rare in that I don't support Man U but follow my own teams, its nice when the City and Tigers win,one more than the other.
I am Left Handed and have no time for people who can't handle it, and I look for good examples of a positive image wherever I go.
Definitely a non smoker, not so keen on the pub scene, but can now and again.
A few years back the Borough Council displayed 6 of my photos for four months,both at the council offices and at The Environment Centre.
ages ago I sent a picture in to this site and it got accepted for download so go visit it here.
Got 4 pictures used on a proper proper travel website,I didn't get any money which was really annoying,but we at least got photo credit.

I am also on Facebook, "oh the humanity of it all"!!!
I feel WAY TO OLD, but what the heck, I end up spending hours on there.
Drop me a line if you like.
My main web profile, 1,800 plus pics covering my travels since 1999, a website I use often, I am proud of my collection.
So as needs change so does my photography, whilst my Nikon F80 is still in use it's weight and bulk mean it isn't very convenient to lug around, so we have opted for a Panasonic TZ3 digital camera, initial impressions are good.
I went for the BLUE version as it looks rather snazzy.
The picture of this cool Butterfly was one of about 100 test shots I put the TZ3 through seeing how it got on, I really like it, the picture has character, it is just slightly blurred, which as a test shot I was rather taken by, the fact that it adds a bit of life to the shot, it is nicely centred and was a quick reflex point frame shoot photo as the Butterfly was GONE.
It was shot using the digital macro function with image stabilizers on level 2.
