It is with great sadness that we inform you that John Ware passed away on 23rd December 2010. Photography was a major part of his life since he was a young boy. He never went anywhere without taking his camera and had a natural ability for composition. He won two Amateur Photographer competitions and for several years was a professional photographer.
Please enjoy viewing John's wonderful pictures of England, which remain on the site with kind permission from his wife Valerie. John's original profile can be read below.
Ever since I was young, I've always admired those pictorial-style photos that try to bring out the character of places, and still get a kick out of exploring the by-ways of the southeast from my home in North Kent whenever my wife and I have a chance.
I think that digital cameras (especially compacts) are a terrific innovation. They've made it much easier to produce well-exposed good quality images, so you can concentrate on the subject matter. I can simply pop mine into a pocket whenever I go out, much easier than lugging a bag full of gear around !
