This is a collection of my favourite photographs, I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.


About
My name is John Davies, I am 66 years old, with three daughters and a granddaughter. My wife Diane passed away in May 2012, we had been married for 25 and a half years. I live in a small village called Felinfoel, which is on the outskirts of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire, Wales, UK. I worked as an office manager for a Information and Advice Centre specialising in Welfare Benefits Advice for Elderly and Disabled people until I retired in June 2015. Previously worked as a Police Constable in the Dyfed Powys Police until I was medically discharged due to a bad back in 1990.

I have been involved in cricket administration for the last 39 years as secretary of local village team and the South Wales Junior Cricket League, one of the largest of it's kind in the UK. Took a squad of 22 Under 17's to Barbados for 14 days in February 2009. I was made a life member of the Junior League in August 2012 for my services which date back to 1983, and made a life-member of my village club Felinfoel CC in 2015. I also score matches for my local club Felinfoel CC, the MCC, Wales Women & Wales Over 50's.  Travelled to Cape Town in Suth Africa in March 2020 for the Over 50's World Cup which was curtailed after two and a half games due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Got into digital photography around 20+ years ago when I bought a Fuji Finepix Digital Camera 3.2mp. I upgraded this to a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 a few years later. This was discarded for a Canon EOS400D in 2008 and I bought a Canon 50D in 2010. I upgraded to the Canon EOS60D in 2013 and bought the Canon EOS7D Mk2 in 2015.  Recently purchased the Canon EOS 90D to replace the 60D which was 10 years old

When my back permits I like to visit the local Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Wales. I enjoy taking photos of Wildlife and sport. With Pembrey Race Track and the Ffos Las Racecourse close at hand I have tried my hand at Big Trucks, Motorcycling, Sidecar and Horse racing shots as well as landscapes. Visit the local steam and vintage car rally at Pembrey Country Park every September. I retired in June 2015 which has allowed me a lot more time for cricket scoring & photography.
