Have camera. Will travel.
When I was a teenager my dad brought home a fancy new camera; a Nikon Coolpix 950. I had never seen anything like it—not only was the swivel hinge lens completely out of the ordinary, the camera was digital—no film required! I had always enjoyed taking photos while on our family trips, using those disposable cameras that housed a roll of 35mm film in a plastic case covered in card-stock paper. But now having the ability to take an unlimited number of photos, deleting the bad ones, then editing and adding effects on the good ones, all without wasting film—this was revolutionary! I played with the camera for hours, taught myself a few tricks in Adobe Photoshop, and discovered online communities like DeviantArt where I could share my creations and learn from other photographers. Over the years I've explored both film and digital photography, always trying to improve my skills and find beautiful images to capture. Fast-forward to the present day where I have thousands of photos sitting dormant on hard drives—that's partly what drove me to create this website. Just to have a little corner of the world wide web where at least some of those photos from my adventures could live and, hopefully, be appreciated by people like you.

Honfleur is a city in northern France's Lower Normandy region, sited on the estuary where the Seine river meets the English Channel. Its Vieux-Bassin (old harbor), lined with 16th- to 18th-century townhouses, has been a subject for artists including Claude Monet and native son Eugène Boudin. Nearby Saint Catherine's Church is a vaulted wooden structure erected by shipbuilders beginning in the mid-1400s.
The Canadian National Vimy Memorial is a memorial site in France dedicated to the memory of Canadian Expeditionary Force members killed during the First World War. It also serves as the place of commemoration for First World War Canadian soldiers killed or presumed dead in France who have no known grave. The monument is the centrepiece of a 100-hectare (250-acre) preserved battlefield park that encompasses a portion of the ground over which the Canadian Corps made their assault during the initial Battle of Vimy Ridge offensive of the Battle of Arras.
The Svalbard reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus) is a reindeer subspecies found on the Svalbard archipelago of Norway. They are the smallest subspecies of reindeer. The subspecies is endemic to the Svalbard islands, where it has lived for at least 5,000 years, and become well adapted to the harsh climate, being found on nearly all non-glaciated areas of the archipelago. It is the most northern living herbivore mammal in the world.
