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

Joe Connors's conversations

After 9/11, the National Cathedral in Washington DC was a forum for discussion about the results of fanatical religions and other narrow thinking patterns that has defined much of human history.

As usual, he patiently and subtly presented his wisdom, hoping it would pass through the filters of the listeners - good Luck pal !

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.

Joe, The Photographer.
