My name is Michael Gaylard, and I am an amateur photographer living in West Sussex, England.
Some years ago a trip to visit friends in Abu Dhabi rekindled an interest in photography and I started taking what I realised later were just holiday snapshots.
At the time I could not afford much in the way of a camera, it was a Fuji digital bridge camera something or other and whilst it served its purpose I grew bored with its limitations and so embarked on the expensive hobby of photographyusing Nikon DSLR's. First I had a D3200, followed by a D600, and now I have a D780 as well.
I decided to take early retirement on the 1st November 2021. Prior to retirement I had spent 35 years in IT working on developing databases, intranet pages and a myriad of other mainframe applications.

I am unashamedly amateur, and also something of a generalist in my photography. A lot of my pictures are of travel destinations, but if I see something I like, I will photograph it. So you will find lots of flowers and plants, engineering and architecture. I also take the occasional bird life shot too when I am out my photography buddy. Lately, street scenes are appearing more and more in my output.
The photographs here are organised into two main groups:
