A view from the Dermoch Bridge in Dunblane. The Allan Water passes through Dunblane almost splitting it in half. To the right is the old part of town - the rear of the High Street which was the main throughfare. Dunblane Cathedral clock tower can be seen in the background.
Now an established member of the "over 50's Club" I started off using a film camera many years ago and I remember the anticipation awaiting the results from the lab. The cameras I used were handed down from my (late) father when he upgraded his own equipment. I remember using a Zorki and a Zenith along with a light meter to get the correct exposure. We also developed our own B&W images in a small cupboard under the stairs (no Harry Potter here!).
I eventually bought my own camera - a Minolta X300 - in 1988 on Guernsey. Taking pictures using the digital medium was started with a Sony DSC-P9 then a Canon and Panasonic before I discovered the Fuji X-A1. I then upgraded to an X-T20. I currently shoot with a Fuji X-T3 with a multitude of different lenses. My gear comes with me (almost) everywhere I go.
Fuji equipment found my love of taking pictures resurged. I have even recently dipped my toes into wedding photography when friends asked me to take some images of their wedding (Doug and Chiara - thanks!!) I did another when my brother and his fiancée tied the knot in August 2019 and family friends asked me to capture their day in June 2021.
One of my images has been published in a small book after a competition on “Visit The Trossachs” Facebook page, two images were published in “Scottish Life” magazine in a feature on Bridge of Allan, several images have been featured in an international gallery organised by “Glasgow Gallery of Photography” in the Savoy Centre, Glasgow - another showing a rescue at the Monument was published by Press & Journal and (to date) 70 images are available by licence on Getty Images through the website 500px.
Images are for sale on my other pages in various sizes and I hope you get some enjoyment from completing the jigsaws I have to offer here.
