I'd totally forgot this quote, so must tell you how much I love it:

A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said 'I love your pictures - they're wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.' He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: 'That was a wonderful dinner; you must hava a terrific stove.'” Sam Haskins

HI Chris
I have now added a correction to this gallery as you suggested.
Very pleased that you have taken the time to look through my Galleries.

Kind Regards

Hi Ken - Just browsing through a number of Pirate Radio related pages, and I came across the photos you took at BBC Pirate Essex in 2009.
You mention that the pirate radio exhibition pictures belong to the LV18 - In fact the exhibitions is owned by Pirate Memories, a website dedicated to 60's & 70's offshore radio.

Hi Ken
Is it possibly to purchase a print or electronic copy of a photo of my husband and I that you took yesterday, love the picture.
Ann Hutton 08-Jun-2015 09:32
Dear Ken,
Included in the photos of the band of the parachute regiment playing at the Colchester bandstand is a picture of my daughter playing the saxophone. Is it possible to purchase a copy? Many thanks

Hi Ken, have added you to my favorites list and will be back to view more of your fabulous work.
Guest 04-Sep-2013 18:14
Dear Ken, if possible would love to purchase a photo you took of the rememberance parade at Colchester 2012. The one of the musician warming up as it is my daughter Musician Ruth Quartermain, clarinet. Only just found the photo on your web site and love it! If it is possible to purchase a print, please could you advise me, thank you so much! Email address Kind regards Martin Quartermain

Your photographs are wonderful. It is a pleasure to view them. Do you use an editing software to get the crisp bright pictures? If so, what editing software?
mashuga20-Oct-2011 23:36
Thanks for your visits. I've wanted to comment on some of your photos, but for some reason I get no comment box??

Hi Ken

Just to let you know that Run4Fun is taking place this Thursday (9 Sep) at Castle Park. I know you usually come and take pictures! If you can make it and let me know your pics are online I will try and put a link to them on the Run4Fun page if there's room!

I was looking back over my work on Pbase and had been working as Lizard Lady not just Art2license. Mostly take pictures in my garden in the smoky mountains at this time. I had such a collection of Lizard Photos. Your profile image reminds me of Michael Jackson a little bit. Also, you have been on here a long time, longer than anybody I think I have viewed. I noticed you have a redbubble site, I do too. JeffeeArt4u I will look at your work. My things are digital new images.

Hi i was just looking through the pictures of the colchester remembrance parade and wondered how or if it would be possible to get a copy of one of them .

Kind regards

Nice woek, Ken.
Faith 08-Aug-2009 21:08
Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a picture of my son, your "colonial soldier" challenge. He is a life long reenactor. He still has that same King's 8th regimental coat and it looks even worse, or better, depends on how you look at it. The event was a festival in Ohio, USA. He said he needs to work on his serious-somber look.

many thanks for the pic comment and voting

I have just seen your picture's of the Newfoundland dos Sea rescue at Harwich.
The dog pictured is my very own Ella.Beautiful pic.We were all upset as we spent all day in the water and didn't manage to take any pictures ourselves.

Absolutely beautiful work Ken! Ever truly inspired!
A master behind the lens!
Carol Muse Skinner04-Jul-2008 22:07
Ken - thanks so much for the comment on my Stonehenge image. It was an amazing day - January 2007. Cold and windy and our family of 5 and 3 Aussie were the only people there - so I didn't have to Photoshop any people out of the photo! It was my husband's dream come true to take our granddaughter to see the stones he grew up with. I cannot imagine seeing them for the first time in the summer with a zillion tourists in shorts and sandals. It was an amazing experience.
mark perez20-Jun-2008 20:37
Thanks for the photo comment. Yours are great and I especially like your dog pics. It is nice to see dog pics in the top photos as pets instead of what someone else had thought they should be.
Carol Muse Skinner13-Jun-2008 17:43
Hi Ken - Thanks so much for your recent comment on my attempt at Abstract Expressionism. Abstracts are not what I usually do - but this challenge on Creative Matrix really inspired me to have a go - it's been fun. So much of what I do I think "will this sell?" This was just pure play. I'll be back soon to check out your galleries again. Carol
Guest 03-Jun-2008 07:26
Hello Ken , I adore your work, you are a brilliant photographer, cheer.
Nancy 25-May-2008 22:52
I can see that you are located in the UK, but have you ever lived in Australia? I am searching for the Ken Chambers that we met and traveled with through Southeast Asia in 1979. This may not be you, but if it is, this is Nancy, the Yankee sheila from California. Let me know, ok?
Walter Otto Koenig12-Feb-2008 22:34
Hi Ken,
I like what I see in your galleries and plan to come back many times to explore more of your beautiful images. You have some superb work here.
Best Wishes, Walter

Ros Thomas 06-Jan-2008 12:37
Thanks for the introduction to your site you gave me this morning. I have enjoyed browsing. I think you have taken a picture of the sailing barge I travelled on last Tuesday - the Victor is based at Mistley and goes up and down the river to Harwich and beyond.
If I can find out how, I will send you my own version of The Woodbridge scene, which I have painted, of course.

Hi Ken, Thanks for the comment on my Rust In Peace gallery! Some people view them as rusty old cars - to me, they are a piece of history and deserve to be on Pbase! Feel free to visit again! B.
Guest 04-Nov-2007 17:12
Thank you for visit my galleries and your comment . I like to see your galleries same.
alicialee15-Sep-2007 22:01
Hi Ken; I see by your comments under a sketch that you've been in hospital; hope you are fully recovered. I'm a homeopath in New Zealand and I was wondering if you would allow me to use one of your excellent photos in some work I'm doing. If you would consider this please contact me on: lee-hay AT and I'll send you all the details. Thanks very much, happy snapping, Alicia
Guest 27-Jun-2007 12:59
Words can't describe how impressed I am of your work.
Guest 25-Jun-2007 05:57
Thank you for your kind words, Ken.

I especially like your artwork galleries.

Guest 25-Mar-2007 09:07
G'day there Ken. Thanks so very much for the very kind words on my bird gallery and I love to share the beauty of Australia with the world. Your words give me confidence and inspiration, for that I am greatful. Cheers, Kylie.

Hi, Ken :)
I've been browsing your beautiful art gallery, always a pleasure, my friend.
Guest 07-Mar-2007 14:14
You have great stuff here and I'm a little jealous to be honest.
Chris Klapheke21-Feb-2007 03:34
Hi Ken--thanks for visiting my hummingbird galleries and thanks for the kind words. There are more to come from Ecuador so please check back!

I have really enjoyed browsing your fine galleries. Wonderful images of places that I have never been! I like the parade images with the participants carrying frames.

Guest 17-Feb-2007 11:06

Ken, thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate it, coming from you, a very talented photographer and artist! You have such a wonderful collection of work here!
Guest 10-Mar-2006 09:12
Thank you for your comment Ken. Unfortunately I use the Hasselblad only for making portraits of my girlfriend. I love Hasselblad's results but it's definitely too big for carring it with me in other occasions.

Guest 21-Feb-2006 22:26
Hi Ken,

I thought this pbase thing so cool that i've joined up! Thanks very much for suggesting it to me; I'm in under sethlazar if you're interested in looking. Looking at your pictures again i realise i have a lot to learn!
thanks again

Kathy Pilgrim26-Jan-2006 21:49
Here I am again Ken. Since my e-mail didn't arrive as it should have I will say thanks here for your sharing with me what camera you have. You sure know how to use yours better than I know how to use mine. I was guessing by the quality of your photographs you were using something like top of the line Canon or Nikon. I will be back to visit often!
Kathy Pilgrim10-Jan-2006 19:57
I haven't had near enough time to go through all your work but I certainly will. Your work is exhilerating! Thanks for the kind comments you just made on my PBase gallery. I am truly humbled by your compliment!
Kal Khogali20-Nov-2005 13:51
Thankyou Ken for the visit and comment in my galleries. I appreciate the comments of excellent photographers like yourself. I will spend some time browsing in your galleries and leave some comments soon (it's late at night here!). All the best, and look forward to staying in touch. Rgds, Kal

Hello Ken,
Lovely photos.
I was interested in the hovercraft ones,would it be possible for me to use some of them in our club magazine - Light Hovercraft? We would of course give you full credit and mention your website to our members.

Hi Ken,
Just logged on to your site and have viewed the photo's of my Harley. Too say they are fabulous would not do you justice!! Thankyou for your time and it was a pleasure meeting you.

thanks for commenting in one of our galleries. we have been enjoying your harwich/felixstowe galleries and also the ones of the Buckfastleigh Otter Sanctuary and
the South Devon Railway - can thoroughly recommend the Sea Trout Inn at Staverton for a meal or even weekend accommodation next time you are in the area!!
Mervyn Lemon 25-Jul-2004 18:08
Hi Ken,

I was the Marine (the Duke of York and Albany's Maritime Regiment, raised in 1664 by Charles II and the successful defenders of Landguard Fort, Harwich and England from the last major opposed invasion of England by the Dutch on 2nd (12th our Calendar) July 1667) who showed you around the Fort. Thank you so much for the photos you sent me and the fine display in your Gallery of Landguard Fort.

If any the visitors to your site would like to know more about the Fort, they can find details on a link from my site at or at

Thanks again and I am so pleased you enjoyed the tour,

It was a pleasure to meet you at Shotley Marina the other day and thank you so much for putting the photographs on your gallery page. I looked through lots of the others and you have some truly lovely ones. I am still trying to find out the proper name for that lovely classic yacht you photographed, I'll let you know. It looks like being a lovely weekend over the bank holiday, so please, please try to get to one of the points overlooking Harwich Harbour. The yachts will be racing from about 10:00 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Oh, and if you are interested in atmospheres you should try to visit the marquee at Levington Marina for all the after sailing jollities. I shall look out for you somewhere over the weekend.

Best Regards,

Well Done Ken,
Great colours, exposure and composition. You are most definitely getting the hang of the new camera.
