'Photography for me is a compulsion rather than a passion, and is my weekend therapy. I think that these images are best as cards or very small prints, which is why I have only priced for cards and the smallest print size available. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a larger print and I will check to make sure the resolution is sufficient to make a good quality print'.
