Australian on Mission To Photograph Every Parish Church in England

“I think everybody has a certain eccentricity – and this does require that,” he says with a smile. “I do have a particular mission for this. But even so I am not all-consumed by it.”

Thank goodness for eccentricity! I appreciate your dedication and look forward to your app Cameron. A bonus would be to find a church of my forebears.
