I send a heart-felt thank-you and greetings to each of you: +Monika Verma , +Maria Eugenia Granero , +Francesco Scortecci , and +Jordi Navarro . Yes, Jordi, we were lucky with the weather. Using zodiacs, we were able to get ashore onto the Cape itself. We visited the monument to the thousands of people who had lost their lives sailing around the Cape.

Three more photos from our two-day trip on the Mekong River aboard a 'slowboat' to Luang Prabang, Laos (2009). Highly recommended!

Introduction
G+ Circles: If you add me to one of your circles , I will circle you back if your profile includes your photo and provides a reasonable amount of information about you and your interests. I will not circle those who conceal or misrepresent their identity,  or who are trying to sell me something, or who show hatred towards others. I enjoy very much seeing the work of other photographers, including newcomers to this medium.
 
If you comment on one of my photos, I will make every effort comment back. I love receiving +1's on my photos but rarely have the time to acknowledge them. 
 
I grew up in West Vancouver and attended UBC where I honoured in Political Science. I've lived in Vancouver all my life. I am in my second marriage - to a beautiful, wonderful woman and soul mate, Georgette. We married in 1997. Since my retirement, Georgette and I have travelled to Europe, India and Nepal, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Morocco, and most recently, South America (Ecuador, Chile, and Argentina.) My passions include writing, movies and music of all kinds, browsing the Internet, cycling, hiking, and keeping fit at the local community.
 
I became interested in photography at an early age. During Grades 11 and 12, I was lead photographer for my school's Student Annual, which required that I develop and print all my photos. My cameras included a Rolleiflex (Tessar) and later, 2 Leicaflexes.
 
I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus, in 2005, and was instantly hooked. I especially enjoyed being able to PhotoShop my photos. It was like having my darkroom back, only better! I have used a Nikon D80 since 2007. It is my constant companion.
 
Sharing photos through Picasa and G+ has opened my eyes to many new ways of approaching photography. I've learned a lot from other photographers, and I believe I've become a better photographer as a result.
