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 trial, HUGIN, Shift-N, Gimp for when all else fails and Lightroom. 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.

I love the view of these low water harbours.......gr. roeli - like :)

Architecture - a frozen music of the heavens

Oh it was lovely Amelia. It's weird: This is the original upload and it was rejected for GE. I copied it and reloaded it for my holiday message and that one was selected!


I used the coordinates of the photo and the time from the metadata, and then went to Heavens Above to check on whether the bright flash could have been an Iridium flare. They back-predict a really bright flare (WOW! Magnitude -6.7!) at that location less than 20 minutes before the photo time (which comes from just one of the images). The actual time of the flare could be off several minutes and could have been located a mile or more away, so the actual time and and actual brightness could vary.

Very good, Iam sure this was set up here for your benefit J

Hope you are having a good weekend.............Cheers o'l pal..............Gordon

Nice - and deserted. Like 28. Best wishes, Göran

The French for mad turnip would be 'Navet lunatiques' It has a certain ring to it, I think I will get a sign with it on. Cheers Dave for the good idea :)
