I'm an Englishman living in North East Ohio for the last six years and before that I lived in many places in England.

I have been making photographs for 40+ years and still enjoy it. Flickr is a great place for inspiration!

I love elephant jokes such as:

What do you give an elephant with diarrhea?

Plenty of room!

I'm Aaron, an Anglican seminarian in Toronto. Lately I've mostly been photographing birds, with a camera ill-suited to the task. I enjoy the challenge of using the wrong tool for the job.

How do you get down off an elephant?

You don't. You get down off a duck.

I know, old as the hills. It's the only elephant joke I have.

hey hey! my name is Brandon, 27 from North Carolina, an average jo-shmo, professional web designer and programmer with a new toy! Finally graduated from the point and shoot camera to a digital slr so my photo taking took a huge jump. I take photos as a vent from the stresses of my everyday life. Just relaxing to me and helps take me out of the main stream work mode that has become my life and lets me be myself for a few hours a day.

Thanks for the invitation. I'm a 45 year old woman living in a small city about 4 hours north of New York City. I manage a program for disabled adults. I don't know anything about photography except that I love to take pictures. I have an old Olympus digital that was handed down to me.

A man goes to Africa on a safari (or to take pictures?). While there, he comes upon an elephant, in great pain, with a giant thorn in its foot. Rather than shoot it to get the trophy he came for, the man very carefully approaches the elephant and gingerly removes the thorn from its foot.

The elephant begins to limp away, but then turned and stared at the man for a full minute, locking eyes with him. The elephant then continues on its way.

"I wonder if I ever see that elephant again if it will remember me?" the man muses to himself.

Twenty few years later the man is at a circus back in the States. He notices that one of the elephants keeps looking at him, almost like it knows him.

The man wonders, "Could this be that elephant I helped so long ago?" He decides to get a closer look.

With the elephant still giving him the stare down, the man moves in closer, getting right up in front of the elephant. They lock eyes. A knowing look seems to cross the elephant's face.

The elephant reached down... picked the man up carefully with its trunk... lifts him high in the air... then throws him crashing to the ground and stomps him to death!

Turns out it wasn't the same elephant.

How do you get down off an elephant?
You don't, you get down off a goose!!!

Thank you for the invite! I'm honored and flattered. My name is Anastacia (or Stacy, whichever) and I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I discovered serious photography about a year and a half ago. I maintain my photo website through which I post photos and sell prints. I work in legal by day and I hate it. I'm hoping to make more of a career out of photography and writing, but first I have to learn from all of you, the masters. I'm really glad to be here.

HeyI I'm Aaron from southern California-> the San Diego area (Lemon Grove). But currently I'm in northern Thailand (Chiang Mai) after spending six months teaching, working in Malaysia and nearly three months travelling and experiencing other parts of southeast Asia. Travelling and photographing as much as I could has been, is amazing!

Anyhow, I am returning home in a few days, but don't tell anyone because it's a surprise, especially for my mother's birthday on Wednesday! :)

All the best

hello my friend,

thanks so much for the invite. my name is stephen and i'm a film & tv composer. i'm originaly from new york, but moved to the midwest (quincy, illinois) 2 years to get out of the rat race a little bit. everything i do is over the internet, so it's working out. no more commuting 2-3 hrs a day. i've always loved photography and only picked music by a slight edge. i took pictures as a kid (darkroom etc) and stopped most of my adult life. since joining flickr i've become obsessed and am finding it more rewarding than music these days. thanks liberoliber for your all your enthusiasm about life in general, it's definatley contagious. and btw, when do you have time to sleep? hahaha : >
