Thank you so much for your kind words and votes! It made me very happy and proud! Browsing your galleries blown me away. The scenes and faces are super! Thanks for sharing!

And the place from where I took the pic of the Tokyo Tower was from the building (Park Hotel Tokyo), think its next to the television tower in Rappongi ;)

"Equipment has absolutely nothing to do with taking a good photo."

Totally agreed with you and also what I am doing.

Thanks for sharing,

Yes your presentation last night was (as you admitted) choppy. Minor point compared to the fact that you presented a steady stream of very nice images & stories behind them.
SueGal04-May-2010 13:01
Hi John - just wanted to tell you I enjoyed the presentation last night and you have taken incredible photos. The best part for me is that your style is keeping equipment to a minimum and just learning how to take a good picture. Take care ~Sue

Hey John - nice to see the new photos. I really enjoyed the India/Nepal series - i liked the emotions and the characters you captured.

Guest 09-Mar-2010 20:51
Read your "What I have learned so far" today. If you started a religion I would join. Also, how do you get all these great style sheets? The click and go versions get a little old. Later...

Wonderful images and I will make sure to come back and visit when I have hours to sit and enjoy your great images.

Hi John!

I got tons of pictures that has not even surfaced, so please do come back to my pbase and tell me what you think.

Krist Malisse 17-Aug-2009 22:27
Hello John,

Your pictures are "to good"!! You are the example that with minimal equipment, someone can make great photography. You make me think at Sergio Pessolano, a great photgrapher from Italy, who travels all over the world, his photography is also stunning. Still a question, are you working in raw? And do you do a lot of post processing? Thanks for your comment. All the best from Belgium.
Jeff 29-Jul-2009 03:00
I started by looking for comments on a Nikon D90 with 28-200 and got to your site. What a wonderful side trip. I enjoy traveling and was looking for a new camera/lens and if your photos are any indication I found the system I am looking for! You have the eye! Thanks
Heather 31-May-2009 19:48

Inspirational, awe inspiring and truely breathtaking - your photography caught my eye, my mind, my heart and soul - thankyou
Guest 09-Feb-2009 01:32
John your work is remarkable, an understatement for sure! Looking at your work gives me such appreciation for the simple things in life, I an American sometimes think how much happier we would be if only we lived a simpler life. God never intended for man to have "Stuff" but rather to have each other.
Guest 07-Feb-2009 12:53
I am so pleased that my Sea Slugs caught your eye, otherwise I may not have discovered your incredible and captivating galleries. You're on my short list of favorites!
all the best,
Guest 01-Feb-2009 18:19
HI John
I`m very impressed of your works from all the countries you have presented. Great d40X/18-200 performance. It really proves that photography is not about the gear.
Lokking forward for next works!
Greg 13-Jan-2009 20:42
I am in awe, I am humbled, my photography just scratches the surface, your envelope you and absorb you into the photograph. I am well traveled and have seen it all, well you have proved me wrong .... hats off to you ...Touche

Dear John,
Your photos are really wonderful.
May I use one of them (Cameroon, 3 Breadheads, 7 Arms) for a non commercial brochure on the promotion of statistics in developing countries ? I work for an international partnership for the promtion of statistics.
Best regards

msc 27-Sep-2008 21:12
Thanks for the memories.

I spent 3 months in the early 70s travelling thru Morocco, Algeria, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal. While much of the world has changed, your photos show life as it was 35 years ago. If only I had had a decent camera back then!
Guest 16-Sep-2008 04:44
I had a wonderful time venturing through your galleries.
Fredrik 04-Sep-2008 15:54
Hi John,

I just have to thank you for letting me see all these bits and pieces you have collected from around the world. From the start I came here looking for example shots with the Nikkor 18-200 lens but I ended up finding so much more. The way you have capturer both the culture, landscapes and the people who inhabit them is really stunning and gives you a glimpse of how it is to live on the other side of the world and it both make me happy and sad to see all the different peoples fate.

Kind regards,
Guest 12-Jun-2008 23:20
About your shot of Lake Lagdo and your comment about noise.
Do you edit your own photos?
If you still have noise, just make it would make a water color or oil painting.
Sometimes we can't always get the perfect shot, but is life always perfect?
