Hello, and welcome to my profile page! I suppose I'd better write something about myself, let's see...

My new years resolution for 2006 was to do something that I enjoyed! Photography I thought! I enjoy photography! So I did a bit of research, and luckily found flickr!

Since then, photography seems to have become more of an obsession than a hobby, and the flickr community has been a big part of that obsession!

I think, like so many others, I'm now addicted to flickr! If I'm not uploading and commenting - I'm lurking!

Anyway, I digress, what I really want to say is that the flickr folk have provided a fantastic community for like minded people to interact in "interesting" ways! Kudos to them!

    ""Ian has been a great friend on Flickr for a long time now. I just love his pictures and I also admire so much the way he has to turn very simple things into fantastic subjects for his photographic work. Take a look at his wonderful stream. It is worth it, I promise.
    He is always a very dear presence on my stream, as well. His comments are always kind and encouraging and really funny, sometimes. A "FlickrDay" is not the same without him, actually.
    Thank you, Ian...for all these months of priceless friendship.

    "Visiting Ian's photostream recently, a common occurence for me on Flickr, I was surprised to see no testimonials written for him. His work is both inspirational, and awe inspiring. I owe a fair amount of my ideas to three or four photographers on Flickr, Ian is among them. His macro work is among the best on Flickr. No question.

    Ian, keep shooting the way you do, and keep inspiring."
