Welcome to Amateur Eye.

I once reasoned that a keen photographer takes his camera everywhere, in case an unexpected photo opportunity presents itself. A passionate photographer goes somewhere just to take his camera, and create their own opportunities.
Combining my interests of photography and riding classic motorcycles, I can plan my trips with a photo opportunity in mind rather than just a ride out.


I started this site a while ago, and then another project came up that sidetracked me for a while. As a result of making this site, while discussing it with a mate we came up with an idea to create a simple browser based app to display and tag our photographs. While I developed that, this project got a bit sidelined.

However, I learned a lot more about PHP and javascript working on the app, and now it is in its beta stage have come up with ideas to redesign this site, and hopefully finish it. Please pop back from time to time to check out the progress.

Page added to "Techy Stuff" with information about my Library Catalogue project mentioned above.


16th November
Pages added to display photographs from Clare Photo Club. This is a few locals who meet up once a month and pick a theme to take photos of, then print out one entry for everyone to judge. Winner gets to pick next months theme.
This is more about drinking and talking bollocks for a few hours than photographic art.


10th November 2019
The site is now updated with a Guestbook and Contact page, and the homepage has fleshed out a bit.
Next on the 'to do list' is finish the buying page so visitors can actually buy prints and details about the photo tagging program. Please pop back from time to time to check out the progress.
