Monday's link

Well I guess in this day and age we all need a good laugh. I mean stock reports and the finance news just isn't keeping us happy so I think it's time for a belly laugh. But of course the mirth has to be photography oriented and without a doubt the funniest (in fact it's probably the only) photography comic strip is What The Duck.

Join our hapless photographer as he battles the brides from hell, the assistant from who-knows-where and generally stumbles through his life as a photographer. It's pretty funny except for when you realise it's actually you in the strip! Enjoy.

And as a little bonus I thought I'd point you to yet another great piece by travel photographer Bob Krist. In this article he talks a little about how he uses an Epson Multimedia Storage device not only to back up his pics but also to help break down cultural barriers. Kind of like my little photo album on steroids!

I just discovered your blog randomly and i love it!!!
It's funny because I noticed that we have the same caption in our blog title banner : )
Your photos are stunning. I'm a nomad & travel is truly the love of my life. I started getting into photography because I wanted to capture the feeling I get each time I arrive at a new place - just recently Cairns! Anyway I am a complete novice when it comes to photography. But I'm eager to learn, thanks for your inspiring blog!
