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.

David Brown Photogra…'s conversations

Only just found out that Mike had sadly passed away. I only knew him through Panoramio, but found his comments, sense of fun and love of life a joy. He came across as kind, warmhearted and someone who had lived life to the full. Wherever your spirit may be Mike, may it be a good place. I will miss your quirky comments. Elaine (Nikonwoman)

Good to hear, Sonja. Many fine details and composition ideas in your gallery. Definitely going to take a closer look soon.

Best wishes

Thanks! The quality of the old WWII dogfight documents is purely coincidental here.

Thank you very much, ewarwoowar. I'm all ears to this kind of comments :)


Absolutely stunning Unda

Makes me feel guilty for not getting up early and working on this as its like this every morning here in the mountains.

I need to get out more - David

Many thanks David. I suspected you might appreciate the shots of Grasmere. :) It was a lovely break.


Not an easy shot Unda but well executed from a favorite spot o'yours.

The settings look just about right..... I guess its all down to luck (and post processing) after that!

Well done - David

When I was taking this shot and I took three as I thought it was me not standing upright, but further investigation proved it had been built on a slant, there is a slight slope there, but it wasn't untill I was round the back of The Lower Indian Room, did I noticed that it had this tilt to starboard. But how right you are I was also taught Upright things are always upright. But I think I can now prove that theory wrong...............so there you are, now have a good -:)

Cheers my o'pal ...............Gordon

Oh this was funny to watch - it pecked, dived and ducked at itself , as I got closer it flew off and went round to another window and started the process all over again, one of the gardeners said that, that bird does that nearly all day,

Thinks it is to entertain the visitors -:)

Have a good day Blue......................regards. .......... Gordon

Very charming, beautiful and fun photos!
