... the World as I see it ...

Your Bio

Well Hello there ...

This is my photo (and video and map) collection. I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to add comments. I appreciate photos of natural things, of friends gathering together and of my family. I use a 2010 Nikon D90 with a wireless remote and 2 lenses, an 18-105mm f/3.5 - 5.6G VR ED lens and a 70 - 300 mm f/4.5 - 5.6 VR ED IF. I no longer use the 2002 Nikon Coolpix 995 with a wired remote trigger and an 8X telescope lens although many photos here were captured with this camera. I do sometimes use a tripod, a monopod, or table top tripod. I also use Photoshop to balance color, contrast, create sepia tones, etc.

In May 2010 I added a waterproof camera - an Olympus Stylus Tough 6020. It captures high resolution photo and video .. even the sound under water is awesome in the video. This version is waterproof to 16 ft.

I am hope soon to pick up the add-on GPS unit for the Nikon D90.

Maps in the Belize Project gallery are create using either Esri's ArcGIS Ver.s 9.3 or 10.0 or ITTVis' ENVI EX Ver. 4.8 software. And on occasion a map image may be enhanced in Adobe's Creative Suite 3 Photoshop or Illustrator.

Ya'll take care!
