No, that's not me, but I can see the resemblance.
I am something of a dinosaur, sticking with film cameras (disposables, lately) while taking pictures to my heart's content. I love photography, snapping pics of whatever comes along my way. Well, now I'm sort of being hurtled into the digital age... because my partner in crime Norma has sent on a smart phone. I've been messing around with the camera, taking some shots. Obviously not these ones, but they do suit my warped sensibilities.
I do follow a number of photoblogs. Some of them are daily blogs, one of which I started following from St. Louis, which led me to more, and more, and more, and well, you get the picture. Other photoblogs are not quite so daily, but on a regular basis. One listed below has taken a break, but hopefully she'll be back. Others have a regular habit of posting photoblogs from time to time with their own work. And others make their own photography an integral part of their blogs. Take a look through the links that follow, and you'll get to see some great work.

I think that's everyone. Now then, it appears I've joined their ranks. As I've said, I've been playing around with the smart phone, taking a few preliminary shots around Ottawa, getting used to using a smartphone as a camera. I'll test in these pages for awhile, periodically doing photo blogs with several pics a piece, before deciding if I want to have a go at a seperate photoblog. Obviously this blog would continue. You're all expecting my mayhem on a regular basis, and besides, the cats, dogs, and Lars Ulrich all demand serious time to play. They're quite adamant about it.
What to call the other blog, if it comes to that? How about No, This Is Not Carlos Danger's Personal Stash? No, I'd never get away with that (or could I?). Besides, hopefully within a year, Anthony Weiner's back in oblivion where he belongs, sending more selfies and crotch shots to strangers. Anyway, enjoy, and let me know what you think!
