I'm Alan Ford (as if that wasn't obvious from my username), currently living in Southampton, UK.

I'm not a cockney actor, and I'm definitely not a comic book.

I've scattered a fair few of my photographs around various articles in Wikipedia. I release all my photographs into the Public Domain. All are thumbnailed below.

All these photographs have been taken by Canon Digital Ixus cameras. Up until May 2006 this was an Ixus v3, and later photos were taken with an Ixus 800 IS.
