I suppose, as I continue this discourse, right now just with myself, I should ponder the reason I am writing this at all. Well, as I attempt to change the direction of my career, and therefore my life, which I have pointed towards capturing beautiful images, probably of beautiful women, this blog should allow me to recieve feedback on my perspectives as well as some of my work. Importantly though it alows me to think through why and how I go about this endevour. 
As far back as I can remember I have found female legs the most exquisite of nature's creations. A pair of beautiful legs is really something to behold. Long, a shapely calf, norrow ankle, toned thigh and long. Behold those of Katy!

The archive search continues. What I have learnt with this exercise is there is Beauty all around. Some time ago, I was very fortunate to visit Argentina and see many examples of the Tango, in the street, night clubs and a veriety of shows. I find it a most beautiful dance, full of sensuality and movement. This is a photo of two dancers in a nightclub that did a fantastic display in a very small space.

Smiling bright

Well, Boris got in. Could have been much worse.
Still trawling through my archive and came accross a most beautiful smiling Katy, full of happiness, and I hope it brightens your day a little on this cold and grey one. Katy has the most wonderful blogg, . full of her interesting views and talk of her fabulous shoots. I was very fortunate to spend a day shooting with her. She is a fantastic model.

There is so much going on in the world, that commenting across a broad spectrum of issues would probably take all of my time, so I will confine my comments in future to the plan and progress of life towards photographing beauty, in the eye of the beholder of course. Adjusting to life in retirement before career two, is interesting. Many chores there are, daily walks keep my sanity and allow a wandering mind. Anyway, back to beauty. I am at present sifting through my, now +17000 photo archive for a starter pack for my website. I will post here a daily dose of discoveries, hopefully you will think they are beautiful too!

I am now here!

Well, discovered today I have a blog, last posted years ago. Today starts my new foray into the world of blogging. Maybe life will be more interesting. I attended, two weeks ago, the Bruce Smith Academy for photography. 5 great days of learning, in preparation for my new life as a photographer. Watch this space for updates.
One of my images from the workshop. Hope you like it!

In search of beauty

This is my first foray into the world of blog.
I suppose it is important to give a little bit of history. A geordie lad am I, but well travelled. An African cosmopolitan of sorts, with many years in Zimbabwe and South Africa, a short spell in Hungary and back to the UK a few years ago.
Why in search of beauty? Wait for my next installment.
