Bill Barnes - Links & Interests
Since retiring, somewhat broken, from a communication management career, I’ve had more time to develop other skills and found a great interest in digital photography, especially the natural world.
My wife Trish and I love to travel to beautiful (warm?) Places, interrupted by COVID of course.
I’ve, in retirement, volunteered for our community, designed websites, campaigned, organised and designed for action groups, MP and councillors, designed souvenirs, clothing, books, calendars and posters and a shop for Radio Caroline still on air online today. I edited and designed the stations fan mag HORIZON MAGAZINE for its last decade.
Now I just enjoy being a Husband, Dad and Grandad, walk the dogs, camera ready for the local nature and travel when allowed again!
Long time friend Colin was Principal Photographer at the National Gallery. Showcasing here his Fine Art and Landscape Photography. Now living in Norfolk he captures the local landscape and ‘critters’
A fine cottage to stay with friends James & Angela Dethick, if visiting Derbyshire’s Peak District.
I’m a member of camera brand specific Lumix Experience on Facebook
On Instagram I share my nature photos with friends and many superb international photographers.
I now contribute to groups including The British Wildlife Photography Group on Facebook
I also follow ePhotozine with a small gallery, sister site to Pentax User I used to frequent.
I’m no longer an activist affiliated to a political party but keep up with the fight against bigotry, injustice and corruption in our world through the only independent press in the UK, The Guardian. Sadly increased apathy and antipathy by voters to our political system leads us to where we are today. Social media sadly leaves us in our own bubbles often preaching to the converted. Thus I mostly stick to family, wildlife and nature, until I get angry again with the fools in charge!
Have a good day. Bill
