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

Nice 1.

Excellent. Your telephoto put the background out of focus, making this a really good portrait.

One big white piece of Broccoli.

Still and patient, this Mantis posed in strange cooperation as though waiting for the colors to come together.

Google him & his book, Golden Bones - incredible story. From Cambodia to the USA, a story emerges that matches the intensity of The Killing Fields and a success, through personal effort, bringing us to the present day - you WIll be inspired!

This image was done with together with Fred Canpolat, the only image on this site shared - it was too important to share with you all.

There are 50 flags around the Washington Monument; one for each state. Hold on, I counted 56 - What?

Well, I found out that there are 6 more flags: one for Washington DC(not a state)and 5 for the 5 territories(some tiny ones are consolidated).

Looking up has its rewards - Blue & White is delightful.

"Now children, always remember you could been a fried egg." Wisdom in the Philippines....

An intersection of a cloud of water droplets with our cone of vision creates the apparent curve of a simple Rainbow.

Or, in non-scientific terms, the Gods are shooting blessings our way.

On the roadside I noticed this unusual color sticking out of a barrel in a junk yard. I do not know what gave these two cut wood pieces their color but I guess it does not matter where it is, as long as we see it....
