About jlynnstapleton

I'm a Licensed Practical Nurse, photographer and writer. My focus in photography has been primarily landscapes, particularly water based images, both in colour and black and white. I love to travel when I can and sometimes find some unique treasures to photograph. I also enjoy writing these blogs and doing interviews when I can. I'm the oldest of three siblings. I grew up in St. John's, Newfoundland [Canada]. I came out as a lesbian when I was twenty-one, and fortunately I've had a supportive family, and friends.

My Thoughts on Series 3 of ‘Last Tango in Halifax’

Okay, this is a bit more long-winded than I had planned when I started writing it, but there it is. Storyline-wise this series took place over a span of seven months (February-August). I occasionally thought it was uneven at times, … Continue reading

Yet again playing devil’s advocate for Last Tango in Halifax

Another series and another set of knee jerk reactions from a group of fans (if you don’t know that I’m lesbian in all my writings thus far, so be it) pissed off with the direction of the series, saying they’re … Continue reading
