About Me, About This Blog.
Anglo/Australian living in Australia or France, I’ve worked in Australia, Belgium and The Netherlands. I’m always curious to see what’s down the next street. I take photos, make music and write things.
I take photographs for pure pleasure. Photography helps me see things better and to notice what’s going on in the corners. I love capturing textures and surfaces, especially patterns on water and shadows.
My main camera is an EOS 350D SLR with either a 35/80 or 80/200 lense. I use a UV filter as standard, plus a circular polarizing filter. That’s very useful in bright sunny Australia… very good for water pictures. I like using the SLR because I can compose the shot in the viewfinder.
I also carry a Canon IXUS 220HS almost everywhere I go. It’s light and produces high quality images with little effort.
I use PaintShop Pro and Aviary for editing, but I dont do much. I mainly use it for cropping and resizing.
As you may gather, I’m not a professional photographer! All photos are taken by myself and are subject to copyright.
It is Drifter policy to always include one of my photos on a post. All the writing is my own work, unless credited.
The music is made on a Fostex VF16 Digital recorder, my main instrument is a Robbert’s Guitar driving a Roland GR20.
I hope you enjoy looking at my stuff.
As much as I appreciate nominations, I dont do awards. This is a bit too casual, I dont put much work into this.
I dont accept pingbacks, they dont do anybody any good at all.
I like getting Likes and I am always pleased to get new Followers.
