self portrait about pagesteelcityscribblings.uk is the blogsite of Philip Roddis, born September 1952 and self-captured here sixty-three years and one month later.

He writes “to help me think and because I like to be read”.

He finds the problem solving aspects of photography “a break from those of writing, an aid to writing and an aid to intelligent travel”.

He travels ”because I caught the bug as a hippie in Asia more than forty years ago, and because it makes me see the ‘ordinary’ as though for the first time”.

He says he’s “become less liberal with age but – since a world run for profit is a world run by the criminally insane – more left wing”.
