About Curly

I am a retired retailer with an interest in photography and computers that goes back over thirty years, I photograph just about every thing around me in my environment here by the River Tyne in north-east England.
I am a recent widower and father to two teenage children, and I love my home town near Newcastle.
I am an ardent fan of Sunderland AFC.
