Oh, yah

Indian Paint Brush Flower, Fillmore, CA, USA

In theory, since it's what I've been telling everyone, I'm a photographer. Or I do photography, or am planning on it...whatever. Here's the background: I do digital photography, am self-taught, and take photos of whatever suits my fancy. In China I did a lot of "mother and child" shots, in the past I did a lot of micro-photography with flowers, and I did a bunch of landscape shots. As I've mentioned, this upcoming year will be focused on social organization and cooperation, which is the perfect opportunity for me to take photos of people, doing anything and everything, AND the surrounding environment, including wildlife, landscape, etc. The people change the land, the land forces people to survive in a particular way (ie, cooperation).

In the past I worked with a Nikon Coolpix 750 (which was sadly stolen from me while in China, and is now no longer made) and currently, or most recently, have worked with a Nikon 8700, which I still use - an excellent basic camera. I will be using a Nikon D200 with a Nikkor 18-200mm lens this coming year, a ridiculously cool piece of equipment which defies all logical comprehension. But my trial photos are awesome.

So! Since I am in theory a photographer, and this website should be at least somewhat interesting, here are some photos! May I remind everyone that I have a strict "if you print or use my photos without my permission I will be very upset" policy.
