I don’t consider myself to be a photographer, more as someone who takes pictures and stores them on various social media sites. Before Facebook there was Flickr. I have not been using the site as much as I used to, but it is still there and available to view.
Back in August 2008 I had a day out at one of my favourite places Parkgate over on the Wirral. As I usually do, I took a photograph and I uploaded it to the web. I thought nothing of it until last week when someone from the Liverpool Echo contacted me and asked if the picture could be used for a feature about the best Ice Cream Parlours on Merseyside.
Here’s a link to it online and below is a copy of it in print. My picture is the third one across. So I am now a published photographer…without even trying to become one.
