WELCOME TO THE JULY 2019 issue of Digital SLR Photography. Having grown up in the City of London, I wasn’t lucky enough to have lived in a home with a garden. It wasn’t until many years later, when I had a place of my own, that I realised what I’d been missing out on, in particular for the potential gardens offer a photographer. In terms of locations, a garden is as convenient as you could wish for, literally being on your doorstep.

Wembury Sunset byRich Walker www.instagram.com/richwphotos “This image was taken close to my home one evening at Wembury Beach in Devon.
