STILLS
 
My still photos were all off-site, at MyPhotoAlbum.com. However, this company closed shop in June 2011 so several year's worth are now unavailable.
From Jan 2011 my photographs are on my
 Picassa Gallery.
 
From June 2016, photographs will be put on my own
 Piwigo Gallery.
This is because Google have revamped Picasa so that it's no longer public - wonderful.
 

Astro-Photos
These have been taken by booking time on serious telescopes in Tenerife and Chile, owned by a US company called Slooh. Not only are the telescopes, mounts and cameras several orders better than anything I could afford but the skies high up in the mountains are far better than the polluted skies of Blakedown. Realistically, it's the way to do astro-photography. Below are a few of the results, each with brief notes on the subject.

Self-publishing a book is now a very affordable way of presenting photographs and text. To get started first download the slick software package from Blurb.com and then start designing! Be warned - it gets to be addictive.
 
Books in the public domain are in Blurb's online catalogue, where they can be bought at whatever price the author decides - in my case at cost!
