About me

After over ten years here on FC I think it is time for me to move on. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions! I appreciate all of you and love your photos.

As a person who enjoys capturing in photos what is around us this seems like a really good place to learn and share what I have found. (As of 12/6/07 I feel that all of you here at FC have taught me a lot.) My current digital camera is a cannon Powershot S31S that I am still learning about. Your comments, thoughts and feelings about my photos are much appreciated. Be critical as your constructive comments will only make me better. And I know for some shots, I just need a better camera. ;)
It's Feb. 15, 2008 and time to draw a line in the profile. I just bought a Canon EOS 40D so all photos from this point are taken with the new camera.
Thanks for all your comments! They are making me a better photographer.
Now it's mid Oct. of 2008 and I have been on FC a year now. This has been a good year learning how to use my camera and making many friends. There is still much to learn about photography, especially in editing. Thank you all for helping me with my photos and being a friend.
Another entry in the profile and it is June 2009. This will be my last entry in this profile as I am letting my membership expire. It is time for this child who has learned so much from the friends here on fc to leave the nest and move on. I love and appreciate all whom I have met here and wish you all the best. If you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail at

After 5 years away from Fotocommunity, I think it may be time to return. Currently I use a Canon 6D. As of Sept. 2014 I will again add a few photos here and participate in the community.

Took some time away from FC during the first 9 months of 2017. But now I am back. I enjoy seeing the photos you post too much to stay away for ever.

    Archie. I think it was you who suggested that i crop less of my picture of the man cleaning the engine. I widened it as much as i could in a new version. If it wasn't you - then it must have been someone else - apologies.

    I love your photographs of the people in peru. It kind of makes me want to go out and buy similar clothes to wear myself. Who knows ? What will my wife think ? Mark.
