lieutenant_pigeon is the nom-de-plume of Ralph Hart, a 50 something father of 2 small boys, husband to Sarah-Jayne, logistics bod and Contax enthusiast. The Lieutenant picked up his first camera on a family holiday to Milford on Sea at the tender age of 7. Over the years, the cameras have improved as have the Lieutenant's skills! The highlight so far? Being awarded Lomohome of the Day on the 2nd May 2019. Still on the quest for that one killer photo...
