John S Horton
Hello Everyone, and Welcome to my Photography Web Page.
This is a replacement for the now defunct "Fotopic.net" who havn't been heard of since March 2011 and who have failed to honour their own promises of providing another replacement Host Site, despite assurances that everyones pictures are safe, I don't know anyone who has received any of their work back intact!
The photographs contained within mainly concentrate on the Railways of Devon and the South Eastern Division of the Southern Region, covering London Termini to Kent.
However, pictures from Landscapes, to Sunsets, Portraits and the unusual are also included, and not necessarily relating to the Railway at all.
I am an Ex Professional Railwayman and self taught photographer. I don't class myself as an expert by any means, and have plenty to learn as time goes on. I am in no way in the same league as the infamous Railway photographers such as Colin J Marsden, Peter Robinson or in deed any others. I take pictures of what I personally like if the time and location feels right to me.
I like to vary my pictures be it Railways, Landscapes, Sunsets, Animals or people. If it looks good to me, then I will record the moment.
Originally born in Manchester, I grew up in the once revered town of Margate, and since 1994 have lived in Devon, where I consider it to be my home for the remainder of my days.
I dedicate my work to my wonderful children who put up with me disappearing at all hours of the day to take my pictures, I love them all dearly and appreciate their comments and criticism, but definitely not their wit!!!!!!
I must also thank Chris Hopkins, a dear friend , and highly reputable Professional Photographer, for all his assistance and guidance, and expertise in his field, and to whom I am deeply indebted.
