What can I say? I have a tendency to be lazy, and not charge my camera batteries, but when I do, I like to get photos. Not ordinary photos, but photos. The kind of photos that show something, or depict something in some way. Of course my long-term goal is to someday get a Canon 550D (at the least), and squash my good-natured best friend and rival Kym Thomas, who you can find on my contact list.

I enjoy nature and macro shots especially, most likely because that's what my DSC camera takes best, but hopefully I'll learn to 'widen my gaze' as Lord Blackwood said in Sherlock Holmes (which is, if you must know, my favorite film).

If you're wondering about my previous screen name, I've always been a major fan of calligraphy, and also the areas of China, Japan, and Taiwan. The name 安玲久寿 means 'peaceful', 'clever', 'eternal', and 'longevity', which is what appeals to me and means the most (it also translates as Alex). I hope those that have the skill and gift to write with Kanji won't find it offensive in any way.
