After spending some time overseas and witnessing so many interesting & new visuals, I decided to engage in Photography to capture those still moments. I chose to document Medical and Environmental issues, which also provided more people and places to see, as in SE Asia, East Africa, Morocco, India, Nepal, Costa Rica, etc. To me, Photography of any type seems best accomplished by practicing each type(portrait, night, landscape, etc.) until excellence is achieved in each; then apply the same rules to all other types(exposure, depth of field, composition, etc. ). Also, to me, the same "eye" that sees the world in all aspects will find a great shot via the Camera, like the right ingredients that will make a great meal. What bothers me the most is "overexposure." What I like the most is obvious intense "effort", whether for a quick shot or a long studied work. For all of us who collectively benefit from this engaging site, I am sure we can all join up in thanking the geniuses from Google in providing Panoramio free to us, & the link-ups it creates with each other through Photography; as well as especially appreciating those who actually implement it currently and previously. The elaborating aspects of Panoramio illustrates a creatively organized concept.... As to "my" little Panoramio Gallery here, many more photos will follow and your comments are welcomed. All images here are a result of that great invention we all owe so much to and those who came before us, that created it: The "Camera." - Joe

The 4Th is special everywhere. DC embodies the concept of Patriotism on this day. Many spots provide observation for the great show. May we strive to live up to the ideals it represents, forever - ah, without using "it" for self-interest.

Lovers meet before a Manila Sunset. The warm glow surrounds the area, as Sunset gives pause to all thoughts on this stage for review, usually for intimate hopes that Love prevails.

Coming home from Fishing, Sunset contrasts togetherness in Family as the light changes, a bond found all day long the World over.

Somewhere off the coast of the Philippines, a night dive found two allies that have the freedom of no rent, no expenses and a free swimming pool. BUT, at any moment, they could eaten...and even by: The Photographer!

Just South of Washington DC is Huntley Meadows, an area wisely preserved amidst a sprawling lack of Nature. I think it may be a yellow-neck night Heron, because it is "night" and I asked someone else who knew what they were talking about.

That same humility allows me to speculate that whoever saw the wisdom of preserving Nature(but killing Mosquitoes is great-no fanatics please)we thank, and try to do the same in measured balance. So, do your part, but remember, there are too many Crocodiles, bad microbes and parasites. Go back to Nature with a big stick.

Thanks for listening

A Dragon Fly lands on a flower and waits for a mosquito to pass by for lunch.

They have six legs, but cannot walk! What? God, get back here and re-do this; I know Hare Krishnas who can hop around on their rumps, never mind one leg.

Another problem: in Europe, they have been considered "sinister," and in Romania, it was/is believed that they were horses possessed by the Devil!

So, the purpose of this photograph is to show that despite this sweet little flower it rests upon, it is a devil with too many legs. I ask you all what is the sinister reason for all those legs????????
