I think I had the best job in the world! you see I moved and positioned Oil Rigs at sea. Oil Rig is a pretty non-descript name because it can be anything that floats really, from your standard mobile drilling unit to Jack-ups to floating Hotels, known as Floatels. If it floats it can be moved.
Being interested in photography and having a job that allowed me to travel and was exciting, it seemed that both my loves, apart from my wife, went hand in hand. However, I didn’t pick up my first semi-decent camera, a Sony Nex-5 until 2011 and on a working trip to Greenland I captured this shot below, it’s not great, but I like it, and I liked showing it to folk, who in turn would ask me lots of questions such as, what I was doing in Greenland/at sea/for a job?, So I started a blog in 2012. Now, let’s be clear, I’m not a writer or a photographer, it’s just a hobby, and while it lasted it allowed me to express how much I enjoyed my job and taking photos. I even learnt how to spell!!. Unfortunately after an accident four years ago I’ve been unable to do the job I love and have only just got back into photography. So I’ll post some of my old blogs on here as well as some new ones.
Hope you enjoy!
