Mainly British subjects such as Margaret Thatcher but with some international figures such as Boris Yeltsin and Lech Walesa. More recent images include travel images of Croatia and several Greek islands such as Paxos, Halki, Symi, Meganissi, Nisyros, Alonissos, Skiathos and Skopelos.I also have images of British events including the famous Jack In The Green festival in Hastings and the Eastbourne airshow.
