I occasionally take photographs of ships, encouraged by a life long friend, Tony Dyer. Unfortunately Tony Dyer died on 20/11/2016. He was a very kind man, taking under his wing a teenager with a keen interest in the Midland Railway and rolling stock. He was an early innovator for the Model Railway hobby, forming MOPOK with John Senior from Staines MRS, they used preprinted sides on a plastic frame with ABS supplied castings to make accurate models of mainly parcels stock. Later with George Pring their company Kemilway introduced etching to Model Railways. Later Tony developed a considerable interest in shipping and travelled the world photographing ships. He assisted in runniing a major photographic website for ships. RIP.
