derekblake (Derek Blake)
This year I celebrate 60 years in photography, yes I was given my first camera for my ninth birthday, and I got hooked. Almost every job I have done, I have been fortunate enough to be able to use my photography, and even turned professional twice. I was a theoretical engineer in the aerospace industry, but have done several other, mainly management, jobs since. I continue to capture thousands of images each year. I also write, both on science and fiction.
