Hi Folks,

I would like to thank everyone whose pictures I've viewed on Flickr for all the inspiration. I am in awe of the beauty I see everyday here. I have been moved to laughter and to tears. I have been provoked to think about and to view the world in new and different ways. I have been allowed to view some of the world's biggest spectacles and some of people's most private moments. I have seen life through other's eyes, and for that, I thank you. I hope that my photos contribute, in some small way, to the experience that is Flickr.

I grew up on a small farm near Smithton, Missouri and now I live and work in Detroit, Michigan. In between, I've lived in Columbia,Mo(for college), Kansas City,Mo, St.Louis,Mo and Chicago,IL.

I work as an Editor. If you live in the U.S. and have watched TV for more than a couple of hours in the past ten or fifteen years you have probably seen some of my work. It's mostly commercials and you can see some samples on DaddyNewt's Channel on YouTube
I am an avid, but amateur, musician. The last band I performed with is doublescale.

Sometimes, people ask me technical questions about my photos. I don't really like to talk about on flickr (it kind of takes the magic out of it) but, I will try to go into more detail on my blog at: daddynewt.com/

I'm a twit on Twitter and a face on Facebook. Please join me.

    "I have been skipping through your stream and realised that most of the snaps I see are like work of art. As a person who appreciates beauty, I am in awe. As a newbie photographer, I am humbled by the possibilities and the learning I know I can get from just observing your work. Thank you very much for the inspiration. Warm greetings from Singapore!"

    "Do you like color? Do you like AMAZING colors? Do you like photographs that are unapologetic in detail that make you say aloud, "wow thats pretty cool" ? Then you've come to the right place. DaddyNewt left a complimenting comment so I of course HAD to check out his page. I looked through the whole thing. TWICE. One of the coolest compilations of photos on flickr is here. Especially more recent photographs. DaddyNewt adds so much to the flickr community. We must be grateful."
