I am from Dublin, Ireland, recently returned from Washington DC. I used to travel a lot to developing countries for my job in the World Bank, concentrating on South Asia for the last number of years. and in my spare time I liked to take pictures of people on the streets and in villages, and of their environs. All of my pictures have a Creative Commons licence (free for non-commercial use, no derivatives, and with attribution). I take pictures so that they may be viewed by others. After all, does a picture exist if no one is observing it? But do let me know if you are going to use it.

    "I've never met him but from his work I can sense his personality. He traveled to so many countries of the world and made friends where ever he went to. His photos talks about the culture, people, and life style of the places he has been to. His photographic knowledge is very wide which you can understand by the quality of his picture. I love the way he mixes into the people of different areas and made them their friend. I thank you for visiting my country Bangladesh and taking those beautiful pictures. Wishing you all the best."

    "I happened to have the honor of meeting Michael recently. So it goes without saying that he is a great individual with spectacular photographs. An amazing gentleman and a master with his camera. His photostream makes you stare at the pics with awe and admiration. He has taken shots of people specially in the subcontinent in absolutely natural and day to day poses, yet the pictures look absolutely stunning which speaks volumes for his eye and his ability. I really don't know how else to express my appreciation for him. Just that I am glad we met and hope we do again."
