Welcome to Tom's Photo Log.

As the name suggests, I'm Tom and I like taking photographs - although I'm still learning and I don't profess to be that good at it.

I've been snapping away with a compact camera for as long as I can remember, but have just recently taken the plunge and bought my first DSLR.

It's still early days, but I expect that many of my photographs will capture things relevant and important to me - the beautiful north east of England, science and technology, local culture and transport.

I enjoy writing too, so I might pen a few articles along the way.

We'll see how it goes.
