Real Lives Series

This is an introduction to my 'Real Lives Series' In these videos I wish to discuss real life issues, problems, fears and dangers. I was inspired to begin making a couple of spontaneous videos about events that affected close friends of mine.

I was subsequently contacted by people in similar situations and it went from there. I do hope to make more in the future, if you have a real life situation that you wish to discuss, please contact me.

Venice

 

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.

I stayed at Cà Due Leoni, Sestiere Cannaregio 565, Venice. A beautiful family run hotel, not far from the Bus/Train station.

Images win 49 awards on Pixoto!

Well, I thought I would boast a little. I started uploading images to Pixoto for their competitions two or three years ago. I was not seriously adding lots of images, just the odd one and considering the thousands that I have on file, so far I only have 217 on the site.

However, this has still surprised me as I have won 49 awards so far. There hasn’t been any financial gain from that, but it has helped a few images to sell, which has been wonderful.

When you do something purely for the love of it, there is no greater joy, than to experience the admiration of others when the see your work. So yes, this really feel wonderful.

5 Magnificent Cyprus Bridges you’ve Simply Got to Walk Across

Ever been on a day out in Cyprus and come across a bridge that has left you breathless?

Cyprus

Fact of the matter is, most of the island’s beautiful bridges are relatively hard to find and certainly off the beaten track. But for us, this simply adds to the intrigue and mystery!
