I am a 35-year-old guy, who lives in Stamford, in the East Midlands, England. I was born in Chorley, Lancashire, England, on the 29th September 1979. Most people don’t believe me that I was born in England due to my strong Scottish accent. My star sign is Libra. I am 5’9” tall, 30″ waist, with blonde hair, which is sometimes short, sometimes long. I have light brown eyes. Which most people think are very sexy. I just don’t see it, myself.

I will no longer be using flickr. This is due, is them changing the free accounts. Right now, you can post up to 1 TB of photos, from January 2019, you only post up to 1,000 photos! Which is nothing at all. Since right now, I have over 6,000 photos on it!

If I want to keep all my photos on it, I have to pay for it (Since, I host them all on my website)! Which is never going to happen!

So, if you love any of my photos over on flickr, I would download them while you can….

So head over to www.flickr.com/photos/gsvalentine/ to download any of my photos!
