Bomber Command- Lancaster Merlin Engine Night Run

Yesterday was Crappy. It was cold, gloomy and raining all day long. My friend, ‘Brooker’, has been jonesing for YEARS to go to Nanton to see them fire up the engines on the Lancaster Bomber.

The Reasons You Should Do ‘Environmental’ Portraits

In the Fall of 1992, I began a 22 year long career. September 1st, to be exact.
