Your photography is inspirational. Did you go to college to learn your tecniquies (spelt wrong)? You really have a talent for framing the unusual. :D

Thanks for the beautiful photos of Campbeltown. My GGrandfather Archibald McPhail left there in 1862 to live in New Zealand. Just to see Campbeltown in beautiful colour makes me very sad that I will never see this wonderful place.
Should there be anyone on the forum who could be related to my Archibald McPhail b 1842 father was Donald b 1811 mother Jean, in 1841 Census they lived in Old Quay St Campbeltown, I would love to hear from anyone who may know of this family - there are many McPhails living in New Zealand.
