Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Originally from Nottingham in the UK, I have lived across most of Canada from Montreal to Vancouver, where I currently reside.

Photography has been a passion for over 20 years. Originally in the 35mm film format and now digital as that format has evolved. My objective has always been to try and capture "a moment in time" and to express that moment in a two dimensional way, to share the way I see the word around me..."Life as I see It"..

All pictures are taken with Canon Cameras, T3i or 7D, Fuji X100s, Leica D-Lux 6, or most recently the Sony A7, all shot in RAW format. I use Adobe Lightroom 5 for processing the pictures.…

Nigel thank you for the llama, I can't remember what I said but I remember having fun saying it. I hope you enjoyed whatever it was. Nigel I have a question pertaining to ethnicities, if you'd bear with me a second.

When I was young I looked at her as my grandma, and I understood my paternal grandparents to be 'Irish'. Which is more or less true, in fact, but as I grew up I came to understand what citizens of the world, we truly are.

I learned in the last years that Ireland was once conquered and occupied by some Nordic peoples, for at least two generations. Unfortunately, my grandmother had passed in the years before I learned this, but another incident hAd caused me to recognise a familiarity carried over from her; that someone who could identify with being of 50% or so percent Danish would bear such a strong resemblance to my grandmother. It really caused me to think, but honestly I know aboriginal- and African- ethnic groups better than I know whites. I know French to an extent, maybe Germans, but some Germans I would get confused with Russians and some Germans I would get confused with spainiards or French. May I ask, are you aware of your ancestry, to any extent?

You are welcome.

No not really, originally I am from the UK, and I did some research into my family tree but it stopped dead due to a fire in the 1700's that destroyed the records going back, there was some thought from my grandfather that maybe it was german originally, but he died when I was young, so who knows.

I have toyed with trying this test, it will get you to your early roots etc.... genographic.nationalgeographic…
