myself

I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer based in Edinburgh. I am an opportunistic photographer: I am happy to take photos of whatever I can get. Having said that, I do have my preferences. I like wildlife and landscape photography. Although, that usually translates to cityscapes and insect photography because that is what is available without too much hassle. Edinburgh is a great place to live with plenty of opportunities.

As a kid I used a Mamiya 35mm SLR and helped my dad developing black and white prints in the darkroom. At the end of the millenium I bought myself an Olympus OM1 with a set of lenses which was a great camera. I reluctantly got into digital photography, initially using a small pocket camera. At some stage I got fed up and took the plunge. I am now using a Nikon d7000 DX dSLR camera. I haven't completely turned away from Olympus though and always carry an Olympus XZ-1.

Technology

There is very little credit I can take for the technical aspects of this website. The basic website uses the bootstrap HTML, CSS and JS framework. The images are displayed using the bootstrap blueimp gallery plugin. The map is displayed using the leaflet javascript library. The site is generated from input text files using markdown and processed by python using cheetah templates. Panorama images are generated and displayed using krpano.
