About The Photoblog

This is the “About” entry for the photoblog:

  • The Photoblog is best viewed in “Full Screen” mode … for most web browsers you can toggle to and from full screen by tappiing the F11 key.
  • I am an amateur photographer, and my equipment reflects this.
  • All shots were taken using digital equipment, either a Cannon PowerShot S30 or Canon PowerShot S20.
  • The camera is the only equipment used other than a small tripod used for some shots. I use no filters, additional lenses, or external flash.
  • Nearly everything you see is “straight shot” photography. I don't do any real post-shot processing … I make no color adjustments beyond the settings of my camera, although I do post-produce brightness and contrast on some shots (especially those taken from the air … adjusting contrast helps account for the washout from the aircraft window). I do adjust for redeye.
  • All airborne shots are taken from commercial airliners (yes, that guy in 1A with the camera, that might be me).
  • I'd welcome feedback via email: avoacre at avocare dot net.
  • I reserve all copyrights for photoblog images. If you're interested in purchasing a print, please send an email.
  • It's a fun and creative experiment for me, and I hope you enjoy it!

I'm glad you decided to list your site at, otherwise I might not have come across it - you've done some wonderful work. I particularly liked Final Sunset, Ocean Sunset, ... actually, I wont list them - it would be easier to list the ones I don't like as there really were very few that I didn't think were excellent. I'll look forward to seeing more.

Thanks. I enjoy chromasia very much, so this is high praise.

I agree with David, there are some great photographs here. Sometimes looking through your images I feel as if I have discovered a kindred mind, as your choices of subject matter resonate a lot with me, in fact some positively delight me with the synchronicity (Mist, Red Tulip ~ so similar but differently interpreted to my forest mist and tulip shots) Thanks so much for bringing my gaze to this site, It would have been sad (for me) if I had overlooked it!

noticed your entries for PP before but only today I had a moment to check your site with ease and I just had to mention how I really loved your work :-)
glad to see I'm not the only one taking photos without extra lenses and stuff ;-) I felt like the last person on Earth doing that lol
keep up the great work

Just recently found your site thanks to Inspiring imagery and very nice overall composition. I also like the large display of your photographs. I look forward to seeing what's to come.
