I am quickly displaying some of my St. Mary's Potlatch photos.  You may find some of these to be a little "different."

NDSM Quarter / Amsterdam Noord
Yesterday I went to Amsterdam to visit the NDSM quarter at the Northern part of the city. This part of town was for years neglected and became a hot-spot for the alternative scene.

Proposed Safari To Phinda Private Game Reserve
A few previous safarians have asked me about Phinda Private Game Reserve, so I'm planning a week long stay there for May/June 2020, maybe even earlier if there is enough interest. This will be an exclusive photographic safari and it will be limited to a maximum of 6 guests at the Phinda Homestead, which is a quite spectacular private villa in the reserve.

I'm Going With Flickr Pro
Ever since Smugmug bought them last year I have been receiving a string of emails advising me that I need to upgrade to Flickr Pro or else I will risk losing a large chuck of my photos stored there because from next month free accounts will be limited to only 1000 photos.

POTW #2.12 Spidey
Ed's note: What's most remarkable about this shot from @Alan7140 isn't so much the sharpness, it's that it is a focus stack made hand-held! Great image originally posted here.

It’s an interesting question, fully deserving of an honest answer since this has been by far the busiest year of my 10 year long stint as a freelance photographer.
The first thing I learned is that when you have a satisfied customer your enthusiasm to satisfy them even more intensifies. The better you are at producing what they need to fulfil their mission, the likelier they are to keep coming back to you and also referring you to others. This leads you to find new ways to impress them at the next incidence, even if it’s just an incremental change from before.

The Lion Whisperer & His Black Leopards
Kevin Richardson is a tireless campaigner for lions and other wildlife here in South Africa. He runs a sanctuary for these animals just outside of Johannesburg and next year on the day before our safari to Sabi Sabi begins I will be taking our small group on a day trip to visit this sanctuary (and hopefully meet Kevin himself).

POTW #2.10 Ribbons Of White & Grey
Ed's notes: Somehow I forgot to make this POTW last week. It should have actually been put up earlier, but I have an excuse. This is one of a series of really excellent architectural shots from Mike. I chose this one because of the human element and the way the building frames the person. Great stuff, Mike!

POTW #2.9 Seascape with Otus 28mm 1.4
Ed's notes: Another lovely image by Aguinaldo found here. I particularly like the shape of the water coming onto the beach, which reminds me of the Rolling Stones tongue logo (for some reason).

My First Impressions of the Nikon Z7 Mirrorless
My Nikon Z7 arrived and a hefty little thing it is. No, it is not as large as my D850, but it is heavy enough with a lens on it.

POTW #2.2 Koln Today
This is #2 in the second series of Pic Of the Week. It was difficult to select which of the images in this series should be made POTW. I chose this one because of the contrast, perspective and lines of contrails in the sky. Great shot!

Review: Luminar 2018
Over the years I have observed that there are three broad types of photographers. Those who love to take photos, those who love to edit them extensively, and those who love both the taking and editing processes. Unfortunately I don’t fall into either of the latter groups.
