Welcome to my personal webpage, perpetually under construction.

 Herein I share images and ideas.  Hopefully you will find something that interests you.

Recent News:

  Mar 27, 2005:  After a long hiatus, I am finally thinking about photography again.  This winter has

been a bad one, with no enthusiasm to shoot anything.  Now that it's springtime (mostly), I am looking

forward to getting some shots in.


  Aug 29, 2004:  Yesterday I finally managed to find a Nikkor AF-S 18-70mm DX G lens for sale.

See my preliminary review of it in the Commentary section below.


  I've been shooting a lot of bugs lately.  Getting good shots can be tricky, and it's something

that I find interesting.  The results of my recent efforts are in the Gallery of Bugs.  I try to

accurately identify the bugs in question, but if you notice that I made a mistake then please let

me know so I can correct the error.

  I'm still looking for someone in the Brampton/Orangeville area who would be interested in some

modeling work so I can work on a few ideas that I have for shoots.  No bugs involved.  8-)
