My involvement with Images of England began while I was helping the Old Hastings Preservation Society. The society was creating their own database of buildings in the Hastings Old Town area.

When I attended the Images of England briefing session I was full of trepidation on whether I would be able to rise to the challenge. My mind was immediately put at rest when I saw the list of buildings that I had been assigned to photograph. They were all ones that I was familiar with through the Old Hastings Preservation Society.
The listed structures that I have photographed have been diverse including telephone boxes, railings, and bridges as well as terraces, warehouses and shops. I have also photographed some of the listed buildings in London. Probably the most gratifying structure to photograph was Tower Bridge. It is very difficult to photograph and I spent a long time getting the photograph composed in my viewfinder to try to do the amazing structure full justice. My photograph of Tower Bridge is currently going through the Images of England quality process but I am looking forward to seeing it on the website in due course.
