Ho Ly, Ha Giang Province, Vietnam.

This is Ho Ly - from the mountainous Ha Giang Province, in northern Vietnam She is a farmer and the grandmother of two children and belongs to the Nung ethnic minority tribe.  We had a few minutes chat on the side of the road and she was curious to know where I was from and where I was going, if I was married and how many children and grandchildren I had. She was happy for me to take her photograph and wished me good health and good luck as I left on my motorbike.

Tam Giang Lagoon (IV), Thua Thien - Hue Province, Vietnam

I took this shot on the lagoon near Thuan An village at the end of March. I'm still experimenting with how I process my captured images. I processed this image using LR5 and the Analogefex plug-in.

Mt Solitary, Blue Mountains.

Not much time for catching the light lately, so I made a quick trip up to Lincoln's Rock this evening just before dinner. Being a weekend there was quite a number of tourists up there and several photographers, including one taking photos of a newly wed couple. Lincoln's Rock is a popular location among wedding photographers. This is a view of Mt Solitary not long before tonight's sun set.

Paddy Ploughing, Ha Giang Province, Vietnam.

I took this shot early last month when riding from Ha Giang to Dong Van in northern Vietnam. This young man and his buffalo are getting this rice paddy ready for the next planting.

Buffalo Girl, Ha Giang Province, Northern Vietnam.

Stopped riverside to give the bum a rest after a few hours of rough "road" riding. Looking across the river I spotted this lovely young woman caring for the family buffalo. She didn't think she was pretty enough to have her photo taken, but I managed to convince her to allow me to take a couple. I could happily swap jobs with her. I think when I retire I'll become a buffalo carer.

I'll have a double shot caffe latte with a double ristretto starter, please..
Introduction
"Double Shot" has been my handle on the web for many years. It pertains to how I like my coffee and has nothing to do with photography. I'm married with four adult children, one teenager at home and seven grandchildren. I'm not retired yet, but I'm very ready for it!

My interests are: Coffee, Food, Travel, Photography, and riding my Motorcycle. People often pay me money to make coffee for them, which is always nice. No one yet has paid me anything for my photographic output. Coffee-making profits often get spent on photography equipment.

I am a novice amateur photographer with lots to learn. As a child in the early sixties the first camera I got to play with was my father's Box Brownie - I wish he'd kept it as it would be worth a few bucks now. I can't remember what camera I was using at the time, but in the mid-sixties someone gave me a photo developing kit and I had fun for a while in a makeshift darkroom (a tent in the lounge room) developing my own b&w prints. In the late seventies to late eighties I owned a Yashica Electro 35 SLR that got stolen in a burglary in 1987 and never replaced.

 I've only relatively recently renewed my interest photography, following a trip to Vietnam in 2011 where with just a point and shoot I produced quite a number of photos I thought were well on the way to being half decent. That was it - the bug had bitten. I bought my first entry level DSLR towards the end of 2012 and upgraded to a Canon 7D towards the end of 2013. 

While my photographic output has improved vastly over the last few years I still consider myself a novice photographer and as such I'm interested in talented photographers who are primarily sharing their original work so that I might learn something from them. 

I like photographing and creating images of landscapes, humans, and humans in their landscapes.

Most of the posts on my page are my original work. If I share someone else's work it's because I admire what they've done and in my humble opinion it's worthy of sharing. I don't share anyone else's posts without credit. Please credit me if you share any of my posts. Copyright information is embedded within the image data of all my photos.

If I see another cat or dog shot or video on G+  - ho hum - I'll probably go berserk. On the other hand if I see a cat shot  . . . . no can't say that . . .
