ABOUT ME

I am an enthusiastic, award-winning amateur photographer based in the South-West of England doing my best to juggle a busy day job with a real passion for creating a broad range of images.

I've been taking pictures for most of my adult life, but over the last 10 years or so I've started to consider myself a photographer in the artistic sense of the word.

The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing is a war memorial in Ypres, Belgium, dedicated to the British and Commonwealth soldiers who were killed in the Ypres Salient of World War I and whose graves are unknown. Its large Hall of Memory contains names on stone panels of 54,395 Commonwealth soldiers who died in the Salient but whose bodies have never been identified or found. Following the Menin Gate Memorial opening in 1927, the citizens of Ypres wanted to express their gratitude towards those who had given their lives for Belgium's freedom. Hence every evening at 20:00, buglers from the Last Post Association close the road which passes under the memorial and sound the "Last Post".
