I am back! (May 2013)

It is some years since I was in flickr. Now I see that it is being promoted as having 1TB of pictures free, so I am giving it another try. I always preferred the logical flickr structure to the crazy reorganisations and chaos of facebook.

Sort of renaissance man, philosopher, thinker, scientist, artist etc., studied cycles (repeating stuff) for many years, practice vipassana meditation.

I am admin in flickr for (and maybe more ...): Clone Contest, North Shore of Auckland, Renaissance Man (or Woman) , 3D Creations, 3D Aerial Photography, Photos with Speech Bubbles, Ajanta & Ellora and Vipassana (meditation) group. May all beings be happy!

I have an Olympus C-760 Ultra Zoom camera (10x zoom, 3.2 Megapixel). Early pictures taken with my wife's Fuji or scanned from photos (tagged "photoscan"). Some pictures are vidcaps from my Panasonic NV-EX3 Digital Video (tagged "vidcap"). Some pictures taken with my wife's newer Fuji camera also.

I don't keep all this stuff down here up to date nearly enough ...

All my photos are in sets and all my sets in collections. My flickr Collections include Favs, People, Art, music and Stuff, Nature, Science, etc, New Zealand, Other Places, Another way

    "Ray Tomes has made me stop and think more than a few times. While I may not always agree with him, I always learn something from his thoughts and his photos."

    "Ray is a game player, beware!
    ;-)
    Whether it is a game of GO, Photoshop Tennis, or a logo design competition, he approaches life with the distinct goal of having fun. I am honored to call him a friend. His creativity is clearly evident in his photos; his intelligence shows itself in many ways. Stereophotographers can thank him for helping document the many nuances of our craft. He has authored references and tutorials on Stereophotography (see his profile) that help newbies and experienced users alike! I have learned a lot from him, and I have had loads of fun with him. Spend time in his stream, get inspired, follow his tutorials and join us in his Stereo group!
    Thank you Ray for making Flickr a more interesting place to be!"
