Introduction I have been cycling for what seems like for ever and been interested in taking pictures since I was around 15. My first proper bicycle was a Falcon with 5 gears and my first proper camera a Canon AT1. A few years (quite a few) later and I have several bicycles (a generous definition of several), including two hand-built for me and I used to have a 12megapixel Canon EOS D5. I started life as a researcher after studying physics, I designed silicon chips (and GaAs). Ten years on I moved into Sales and got to travel the world. I then moved into Operational Management. My philosophy of life boils down to "treat others as you want to be treated" and that "structure provides a framework to push and experiment" and "work hard to be happy" and finally "take opportunities, but do not expect them all to work out". I am worried about where the planet is going - global warming is real. We are also using all the planet's fossil resources without enough attention being paid to the development of renewable sources of energy
