Hello
My name is Richard and I live in London.
I never thought of myself as a writer until I recently got a book to edit and realised that I liked it.  It dawned on me that I  actually prefer to do some original writing on the large variety of subjects in which I have gathered knowledge, experience and opinion over the years.  I also greatly enjoy photography and expect the writing to be a stimulus to improve that too.
InfoBarrel looks like an excellent way to do this
