I never leave home without a photo camera of sorts, so I can make pictures of stuff that catches my eye. Every week I publish such a picture, accompanied by the story behind it.
I was born in the Netherlands in the early seventies. Life has put me in a career in information technology since, with music creation as a side track. I hope it doesn’t show in my posts.
All photographs are taken by The man mentioned above, using one of the camera’s mentioned here. The only thing I do by way of editing is resizing the pictures to 640×480, using Apple’s preview application. I’m too much of a Luddite for much else.
The why of this web log is in my first ever post. Since that post the blog has taken some shape, some goals I had were fulfilled, and I learned stuff I wouldn’t have otherwise. One of the things I learned is that it’s fun to do, and this is (and should remain) the most important reason I keep this blog alive.
If you want to know more about stuff behind this blog, have a peek at the companion blog Throwaway weekly – meta.
