David Brown Photography (formally Jethrohoyt). A lifetime Yorkshire-American photographer who owned his first SLR over 40 years ago. Now having progressed to the digital age, Panoramio is the perfect vehicle for this world traveling Yorkshireman/American, multi-lingual (speaks English, American, Geordie, Yorksheer and Southern). I live in various places in North Carolina, and love kayaking, biking and hiking, laughing and thinking. Oh and photography and everything 'computer'. I have used a variety of cameras over my lifetime. Many older scanned images on Panoramio will have been taken using either a Praktika SLR, a Pentax MV SLR or later waterproof Pentax point and shoot and either negative or slide film. My first digital camera was a Sony P&S, followed by a CDHK hacked Canon S3 and then augmented by an Olympus waterproof. I now carry around a Nikon D5100 with a brace of lenses plus a tripod that I NEVER use, and I do my best to try to look like I know what I am doing! Software I use? Picasa, Luminance (formally QTPFSGUI), Photomatix, Gimp for when all else fails and Lightroom 5.3. I enjoy laughter and mean nobody any harm, laugh with me, laugh at me. Its all good. Jethrohoyt became my unique web persona after I realized there were more David Browns out there than there are Chinese people in the world. You can call me David or Jethro. People have called me worse. I can be contacted at jethrohoyt via AOL.

What Unda ..... Just look at that improper building name..... now I am sure it is West Ayrshire Leisure and Recreation Complex or something similar.

The sign making didn't make much money outa this one.


im not the one to make such statements, but I wouldn't be surprised if its all exactly the same... I often feel like time has stopped in some corners of the highlands :)

Hello David, I've just been out to check the table's top, not for concern about its thermal resistant capabilities - that would be like having a water resistant coating in the Sahara desert - but out of sheer curiosity.

The finding is, that it has an excellent plastic covering that's deceptively similar to glass; as you observed, it has a very good prismatic effect, so much so that it has earned me a number of kind comments, yours included. :)

Please keep me up-to-date with your future peregrination into the world of refracted and reflected light and its photographic possibilities: wishing you a successful outcome to your endeavors, - D.

I doubt it very much David; as with the shields, 2nd century plastic I'd wager; cardboard wouldn't last long at being passed around, and our weather would soon give them no protection from the cut-and-thrust of the 'sweet' little conscripts.

The sergeant-major's looks kosher, these chaps take everything seriously as you will know, his equipment will be exactly the same as the original 20th Legion that was based there - according to Wiki.

Thanks for your comments David, I'm pleased the shot has engendered a response of modern-day Deva Victrix, cheers, - D. :)

Thank you Tom


Beautiful scenery, beautiful picture.


Hi Gyöngyi

Great gallery. This photo is one of the best. Have you been to Loch Etive ? We did a trip to Scotland in 2007, but I missed going there. Found out since then my Grandfather Macgregor was born there. Send me a direct email dggrimble@hotmail.com

Don't know what the nets catch - besides photographers, dear Amelia - there's never anyone about for me to pester with questions when I see the nets on the tarmac, but I'll ask when I find someone. I love these colors too. Rainy day hugs (O:

Hey David, it's nice to know that you are keeping abreast of affairs concerning my shopping-list.

On the subject of coffee - one of my favourites, - I also drink gallons of it all day, but mine is that "ghastly" powder you mentioned.

I have tried pouring uncountable varieties of elixir down my throat over the years, but still end up drinking instant; I may be an uncouth Philistine, but Starbucks instant I love, also tinned salmon as opposed to fresh and other weird compulsions.:)

You have a good point in guessing that our Scandinavian neighbors may be insomniacs, I feel an empathy with them, as I'm in the same long-boat.

I certainly don't mind you putting your pennies-worth in, it's a pleasure to hear from a Yorkshire Yank taking an interest in the current drinking habits of his homeland.

Best of wishes to you David, I'm just finishing consuming some of that unmentionable ground-up stuff, and have to go, - D. :^) :)
