thoughts -

'There are no rules for good photographs; there are only good photographs.' Ansel Adams

"rules are rules
rules can be broken
the idea of communication
is to communicate the idea"

Equipment -
The best camera and accessories in the world (the one/s you have with you!). A camera on a shelf does little good.

i love minimalism so most of the images here are from - Minolta dimage IV \ Sony u-30, f505, f707, vtr-70 and n-2 \ Kodak p880 \ Panasonic LX3, Canon PowerShot SD1400IS, Nikon D5000, Apple iPhone 4S (but not all) - most image processing by Adobe, Corel and Sony

I LOVE the LX3!

    "I spent the week-end with Doug, my only cousin, and realized again what tremendous photographer that he is; he does not go out of his condo without a camera and gets many of his pictures from walking down the street . He is also a very patient person and will help his computer-illiterate cousin with any questions!!!!!!!!!

    "Doug is a master of creativity and of technology and seems to be at home in both worlds. His imagination, interests and wizardry is apparent in his photostream. It is a rush of anticipation when I see something new from Doug because I know I will not be disappointed. I also appreciate his support, feedback and encouragement that he has shown to me, Thanks Doug!"

    "Doug has a very catching eye and all of his photostream shows the best what a photographer can shoot. His age long experiense can be seen in his images and i am happy the such a man has shared his work with learners like me and other senior flickrers :) To follow his techniqe i will have to visit his "home" again and again, i hope he wont mind my so many knocks on his door !!!!!
    Advise to my friends, please follow the serious and senior members to discourage the destroyers of FLICKR who are eating up this space for nothing. Take Care and Take well ..... regards"
