Hobbies

Photography


Camera

I enjoy photography. My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic, with which I took some pretty awful pictures. This, it has to be said, owed more to my lack of experience in photography I was in my early teens) than any limitations in the camera. At 18, I graduated to a Canon AV-1, which lasted 18½ years before developing a shutter problem which left it unusable. I then moved a Canon EOS 300, which I used for 11 years before going digital and compact with an Olympus VR-320, which was the best option available to me through Air Miles. When it developed problems, I went back to Canon and I now use an SX540. Fortunately, the quality of my photography has improved substantially over the years. I generally prefer to photograph landscapes, architecture and plants. I even photograph people sometimes! These have in common that they don't generally move at any great speed. I am not proficient in action photography. Some samples of my photography can be found here.




Computing


Computer

I also enjoy playing with and engineering computers. I have built several computers from boards, drives etc. from a variety of manufacturers over the last few years. I now run Windows 10 Home on an HP desktop and an HP Laptop.




Snowshoeing


Snowshoes

In December 2008 I discovered the joys of snowshoeing, and in winter I am to be found at the top of Grouse Mountain, in North Vancouver when I can, assuming decent conditions underfoot. I also enjoy mountain hiking in summer. Some mountain photos are included in my photo gallery.
