Of an age that appreciates Photography and FlickR.

I am a Crusty Old Sea Dog that happens to have a Camera.
I am blessed to be able to spend my life on the water , My true home. I like sharing that with anyone that may want to see it.

As anyone can tell,My photography is all self taught and I believe I have developed a style that some folks seem to understand and enjoy.

You kinda take what you can get and then try to make it interesting.

I learn from others by seeing and reading their comments.

I am really not interested in (Electronic Awards ) but a Complete critic is exciting.

I try and remember to finish all my comments with 'Thanks,'
I do this because I am well aware there are more important things to do rather than sharing your photos..
Yet we still do it .....
..............................and for that sharing,,I say,

Trader Doc - View my most interesting photos on Flickriver

    "I haven't "known" Doc that long, but in the short time I have I feel that I have known him all my life. He is that kiind of individual. I have found him to be warm, supportive, encouraging, witty, funny, and when you need it....he'll give you a good swift kick in the a**. But, this is a photography site so a little about talent. Doc is very humble and quick to point out that he doen't know a lot about photography but looking at his photo stream belies that kind of talk. His pictures are not only beautiful, but they tell a story, when he gives you a glimpse of his world it is with real insight that Doc captures the scene. Along with the ole Pirate he makes not just a wonderful photographer, but even more I am happy that I found him on flickr and consider him a friend. Thanks for your work Doc.

    "Doc is one of the first people I added as a contact after joining Flickr. I asked for honest opinions of my photos and he was the first to do that. It was done with honesty and kindness. I took his advice and have learned a lot in the process. He has an eye for beauty and a great sense of humor. I look forward to his daily posts because they make me smile. I hope he continues to count me as a friend and student because I still have a lot to learn :)
    Thanks Doc :)"

    "Trader Doc is one of the
    best friends you could have on Flickr.
    He is kind and generous. He will
    make you laugh out loud.
    He will make you stop and think about life.
    You will love being among those who see
    his good morning and good night photos
    faithfully posted every day. In a world of un-grace,
    Doc is a man of grace. He is a gentle soul
    and I am blessed to call him my friend!"
