Self portrait

Hi, and welcome to my user page. I have considerable experience in finding useful, and free, images in the online collections of the Australian War Memorial, US Military websites and Flickr. I have also uploaded many self-created photos, and currently have Olympus OM-D E-M1, PEN Lite E-PL3 and Canon PowerShot S110 cameras.


Useful links

Some of my favourite self-created photos (posted in the reverse of the order in which I uploaded them)
