For the past few years I have spent my spare time travelling to different parts of the UK to try to get to know my own country and its people better. Photography is my passion. I hope my pictures tell the story I want to tell.

Please respect my right to my images. If you want to use them for any reason please contact me first and ask me. Otherwise I retain all copyright to all of my work.

Please fave as many pictures as you like. I appreciate all of them. What I love is comments. Please leave comments. I will always reply to comments.

Here we are again my dear friends. Just a few short sleeps until Christmas Day.:iconchristmastreeplz:  It seems only five minutes since last Christmas, this has been such a busy year. So are you all ready? Not long now. There is so much to remember to do and so much to manage to forget. We all know it will be about presents and food and being with those that we love or those we have to be with. Many will be alone at Christmas and spare a thought for those people. Some of them will be quite happy thank you very much but many will not. It can be a lonely time for many. If any of you have neighbours who may fall into this group maybe just a drink and a mince pie could make their day. 
Christmas is a stressful time if you let it be or a wonderful time if you let it be. :lol: I love Christmas. I loved it as a poor child growing up even though we had little money. We had few gifts but we always had a huge meal and a warm fire and we were all there together. It was a magical time for me. 
I remember with such warmth as a young boy at school being in the Nativity play. Sitting in the class room making decorations with coloured paper, glue and glitter. The glitter got every where and so did the glue :lol: Singing carols at the Christmas show for our parents. My memories of those days glow with happiness. I have never lost that feeling. As Christmas approaches I am filled with a child like excitement. I love the day and I love the feeling. 
Many words have been spoken about Christmas over the years and I would like to share just a few of them with you. 
"He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree". Roy L. Smith
"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful". Norman Vincent Peale
"Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone". Charles M. Schulze

For me Christmas is about giving. It never was about receiving because we didn't have much. I learnt about gratitude when I was young. I have kept that with me since those days. Which leads me nicely into my feature for this Christmas. Here is my chance to give your pictures a little space and a little audience. I am so grateful for all your love and support all year. I really am. With each passing year I make new friends here on dA even with the new logo :P With each passing year my friendship deepens with those I have known longest. You fill me with love, admiration and a feeling of family. I belong here and I am so very happy that one day in the past I decided to join dA. It has been among the best decisions I have ever made for without taking that decision I would not have met you amazing, inspiring, loving and utterly charming people. SO here is my small way of thanking you. Here is a selection of works I have collected in the last couple of months. They are all made by wonderful, magical people so please give them some time in your busy lives :iconbigheartplz:  

Rose by PassionAndTheCamera     In the here and now by StonyStoneIsStoned2        A Love StoryLove walks in,
My heart skips a beat.
You really got me
Hooked on a feeling.
You're nobody,
'til somebody loves you
Little things,
Nothing else matters.
Lips of an angel,
Beat of your heart.
Warmness of the soul,
Need you now.
Who are you?
Ain't no mountain high enough.
Never say goodbye,
See you again.
