Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
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.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it–stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.” – Joel Meyerowitz

dignity and power by LordLJCornellPhotos     A place to pause and take stock by LordLJCornellPhotos

You know I used to think we were all lucky to not live in the early or middle part of the 20th century. We were not alive to experience the two World Wars. In truth though, it seems that wars, violence and hate are with us all the time. The terrorist attacks in Belgium are the latest example of a hate war using indiscriminate violence against ordinary people going about their normal daily business. Where ever you live in the world, Belgium, Paris, Turkey, Madrid, New York, London.....................anywhere, you can't help but be affected by the tragedies that keep unfolding. It fills me with sadness. 
If you were to visit this planet as a stranger you could be forgiven for thinking that, due to the actions of a minority, this is an ugly world full of loathing and suspicion and hate. This is not the case though. 
It strengthens my resolve to find beauty in this world. I spend my life looking for beauty, love and compassion. It is what I have done all my life so far and it is what I will continue to do. 
Light must always conquer dark and Love must always conquer Hate. We must have hope and optimism for without these we have nothing but despair. The evil must not win. 

I have met so many people here who prove to me, on a daily basis, that there is much love in the world. There is love, hope, compassion for one's fellow man/woman, tenderness, passion, creativity and happiness. I find all of that and more from my friends here at dA. We all live in this world, in various countries, and we all share this common love of art in the first place. Then we find people who become important and close to us. The feeling of community amongst my friends here is not something I was expecting from dA.  I thought it would be a place I showed my pictures and maybe some people would like them. I did not expect to make such close friendships. I did not expect my heart to be touched by some of the most amazing, wonderful and loving people I have ever met anywhere. You people really show me what being here on this planet can be about. :heart: When I am feeling low there are always people here who will give me a lift. People who pick me up. They don't even know they have done it most times but I appreciate you all for it. :huggle:  Some of you I feel like I've know all my life. There is a closeness and a bond that I hope will never break. :love: I won't name names as it's embarrassing to miss anyone out but you must know who you are :heart:
I find that in sad times I get sentimental. I have had my own sad times to deal with recently and this all gets put into perspective by the recent tragedies in Brussels. We all have our own battles in life though and we have to find our own way forward. That is the only direction to go though. Forward. I am so happy to have you all beside me as I make my own way in my life in this troubled world. :heart:

So I don't want this to be end on a sad note. Easter is a time for celebration in the Christian faith.  If you don't celebrate Easter then please, pray for peace in your own way. If you do celebrate Easter then also pray for peace.

I will be out there with my camera trying to capture the beauty I can find in the world to share with you. I hope you will enjoy my travels and feel the love I have for this planet and nature from my humble pictures. I thank you for each and every favourite and comment. I will always reply to a comment as I love that you have taken the time to write :love: Much love to you all. You enrich my life :heart:

And now I would like to share some art with you. All of these pieces of art have been made by amazing people and I'm sure they would love to hear from you if you like what they have created. Please, if you have time, let them know. Thank you very much for reading this :hug:
