  • Mood: Peaceful
  • Listening to: Sunday Morning - Maroon 5
  • Reading: Your devious messages
Thanks to all new watchers and everyone that featured my photographs in their recent journal entries.  Your kind support is much appreciated.  I'm still behind with hundreds of messages to read and dozens of notes to reply, so please be patient and I'll get to them eventually.

Would also like to thank those that have purchased my print(s) which generated $63.59 in profit as of today.  This fund will be donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital along with my hair to Locks of Love--an organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

Once again, special thanks to deseonocturno for his generous gift of an unexpected subscription.  :handshake:

Thank you for your visit and comments.
Eat well, exercise often, live honorably, respect nature, and be happy!  :peace:

F.A.Q. :confused:

I'm a painter/sketch artist, may I use your photo(s) as reference?
:) Feel free to use my non-stock photos as reference to your traditional and/or digital drawings/paintings.  Please send me a link to your finished work, I'd like to see your interpretation.

How do you get such clear shots through glass without glares/reflections?
:) You can read more about my simple technique here… in STEP 4

How do you take shots through vertical-wire or chain-link fences?
:) You can read more about my simple technique here… in STEP 6

What type of cameras and/or lenses do you use?
:) Here's a… to my photo gear.  Specific equipment info can be found beneath each photograph found in this gallery.

Do you work at zoos or state/national parks?
:) No, I operate my own international trading business.  Photography is a passion and serious hobby.  

Can I use your images as stock or for photo-manipulation, web design, web blog, or other personal/school/work projects?
:) No, this gallery contains no stock images.  All my photographs are copyrighted and may not be altered, printed or published in any media and/or format.  

Why do you have watermarks all over your photos?
:) Because they are my photos, not yours!  

What do the four-digit numbers in your image titles mean?
:) They are original image file numbers from my cameras (IMG_2005, IMG_2006, IMG_2007, IMG_2008, etc.) and kept as reference for easy search in my personal photo archive.
