When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Ansel Adams

I am a photographer and information security professional who has the luxury (curse?) to travel around the world as part of my “day job”. Both the art and science of photography have been an interest of mine for over ten years, as well as the various digital post processing techniques and tools. The majority of this blog is related to photographs taken while traveling for business and while on vacations, as well as my other hobbies including links to motorcycling and geeky things that tickle my fancy. While I may also post things related to my profession – Information Security & Risk Management such should not be seen as my company’s opinions, nor to have their blessings.

But wait … there’s more!

If you are interested in more about my gear, tools, software, the sounds of one hand clapping in the forest and the other Random Non-Sequiturs that are my life, head on over to the requisite “About” page … fairly boring stuff, but there if you are interested, or suffering from insomnia and out of ambien or melatonin 😉

Please do leave comments on photos and posts – knowing what people like about them (or conversely hate about them for that matter) really does help me and others learn from different perspectives. I’ve learned quite a bit asking an odd (or dumb) questions on other photographer’s and coding sites, so really, don’t hesitate. You can also follow me on the various social media and photography sites shown above.
