I am an American, 64 years old, retired Graphic Artist living on my sailboat, s/v Seaductress. I currently call Rio Dulce, Guatemala my home port.
I do freelance photography and all types of graphics. I take photos everywhere I go. I very seldom leave the boat without a camera, but now it is my hobby. I don´t work anymore.
I am a Flickr Addict.
I post all my photos in Full High Res versions with some rights reserved. You are free to use my photos on a blog or gallery but please follow the rules and link back to my page with the embed code.
I have a web site dongatoriodulce.com which has links to many other Rio Dulce sites.
I am also now building sites for friends. I usually don't charge anything but the annual hosting fee, this is my first client, hotelkangaroo.com/ , and my newest client, lajoyadelriomarina.com/
I just do it for entertainment.
Hi to all my contacts and thank you for all your comments and awards.

My favorite quotations are.....
"Life is what happens while you are making other plans.,".........John Lennon
John Lennon was my idol.
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."...........Benjamin Franklin
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation's."...........James Madison
"The people are the ultimate guardians of their own liberties. In every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy. Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone.".........Thomas Jefferson
The citizens of the United States who still live there should pay heed to the last three quotations.
