Photos featured on Facebook Over the last few months I have been posting some of my photos on Facebook. They are not all motor sport or cars but can now be browsed - and ordered - from a new gallery 'Photos featured on Facebook'. They are sorted on filename and you can search on that basis - but it's a bit random at present so I hope to rationalise and improve this soon.

About this web site All my images are available as high quality prints as well as in digital format suitable for editorial and commercial use. You can order prints and books directly from this web site using PayPal or, if you prefer, just use the enquiry facility on the Contact page to request a PDF order form which you can then return by post, with your payment. Almost all the photographs dated 2007 or later are of digital origin and can therefore be rendered in colour or black and white as required.

Viewing the images : First, select the gallery from the menus at the top of the page or above right. Recent galleries can be selected by clicking on the images above. When the gallery opens, a slideshow begins automatically from the first image in the gallery or, if you clicked one of the linked images above, from that specific image. You can pause this slideshow, restart it from another image or go straight to any other image simply by clicking the thumbnail of your choice. In most galleries, there will be more than one page and you can select other pages by clicking on the page number at top-left of the gallery page.

If you hover your mouse pointer over an image preview, the title will disappear and, if you click on an image preview, it will open larger and against a plain black background for better viewing. You can also suppress all titles by going to the options menu at the top of the gallery page and from here you can also leave comments - which I would encourage you to do!

 You can also use these facilities to order copies of my two books on Motor Racing at Oulton Park in the 1960s and Motor Racing at Oulton Park in the 1970s and my newer books, A Vintage Year, still available in several annual editions and La Vie en Bleu illustrating the Bugatti Owners Club's French-themed hillclimb at Prescott in 2009.

 Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Most galleries will feature only a selection of the available images so, if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, please ask - I may have it.

 I hope you enjoy browsing through the images and that you will come back again and again to see what's new.
