Thank you for visiting my pictures. I hope you enjoy vicariously travelling the world through them. Please leave a comment. :-) I like exploring and collecting images of what I see. I also like the fact that I can share them here and help others see the world as others have helped me. I certainly don't consider myself an expert photographer but I do enjoy it. I started out with Minolta SLRs in 1981 although most of my early pictures are lost now. There are still a few around which I've digitized and I still have some negatives so I may be able to resurrect more, who knows? Back in the late 1990s I got my first digital camera, a Kodak with a massive 1 megapixel. I gave it away in 2003. At the end of 2005 my wife and I graduated to something a bit more serious, which being an Olympus Stylus 800. Then a couple of years later, being very pleased with that little camera, we got an Olympus SP570UZ. In early 2013 we acquired a Sony NEX-5R which is an *amazing* little camera. All my most recent images are from the Sony or, in rare cases, my Samsung phone. As you'll see, I enjoy creating panoramas, but not all of them turn out terribly well. I still have all my old analog cameras and occasionally work with those. I have a huge selection of lenses, filters and other accessories and it seems a shame not to use them. Thankfully, an adapter is available to fit all my old glass onto the Sony, and that's great news. I really hope you enjoy my photos ... documenting Saskatchewan (etc.) , one JPEG at a time! :-) http://www.spynovels.org is my website. Please check it out! :-) P.S. As you have doubtless noticed, those who decide which images are selected for Google Earth are disturbingly inconsistent in their ineptitude. Thank God they're not in charge of anything important.

Wonderful capture!

All the best from Russia!


My father worked at the Naval Electronics Laboratory in San Diego as a Scientist, when the Prinz Eugen was in port prior to being towed to the Atomic Tests. He went aboard to research alot of the electronic equipment (most was removed their). A German naval officer gifted him with a water color painting that was in the Officers Quarters. I thought that was interesting and made me a real fan of this magnificent ship.

Great picture, thanks for sharing. :-)

Thank you Corey! :-)

Lovely job Dave and looking a lot greener than when I was there. :-)

Thanks for sharing. I stayed at the Park Hotel in Goldswil on a school trip in about 1977. :-)

Thank you Ronny for the visit and for leaving your nice comment.

Kind regards, finn

Lisa, thank you very much for your comment. I would love to get a picture of the house for you if it still remains. Real-life historical details like that are very important to me. :-)

Thank you for the background information! Real-life historical details like that are awesome. :-)
