Interview 2

Jim Smith of Photography NI: Spring is in the air, with slightly longer days and the first of the new season’s flowers starting to poke their heads above the ground, this may be a good time to dust off the camera, make sure the batteries are either new or fully charged, and go out and take a few photos.
