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 “because it helps me think and because I like to be read”.

He takes snaps “because the problem solving aspects are a welcome break from those of writing, because it helps me write and because it aids 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 ordinary things 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”.
