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! :-)
P.S. A note to all those who have very kindly sent me group invitations: Googly have finally fixed their technical issues (thank you!!) and I can now participate in groups. :-)
P.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.
