    Spectacular Paul - I love the one above of the flower especially... you really ought to put together a coffee table book perhaps?

    right now i'm reviewing around 100,000 + shots, and finding the ones i like the best...long job!!!

    we head off RTW again in about one year so again more photos from that, then i'll look into doing a book/s and maybe a show/ exhibit

    currently now the only books i have out are three different ones you can see HERE

    yes i have i'm just going thru my photos then i will set up a printing company (not sure who yet, maybe Lulu.com?) that does individuals, that way the buyer can choose his/ her photos for each month, the length and design of the calendar...i'll leave a portfolio on the site with hundreds of shots and keep adding to it as i continue RTW

    would be nice to get some feedback to try and gauge interest on something like that

    its a shame smugmug don't offer such a thing, it would make it very easy to create and link thru them...they do everything but :huh

    for these i've used a big variation over the years, they get destroyed, a camera usually last me a year or so, at any given time i have 2 - 4 cameras on me

    the list for the last 3 years is...Canon T2i, Canon 20d, Samsung TL500, Samsung MV 800, lumix dmc, Canon G 16, Canon sx50hs, panasonic LX7, various go pro's, samsung android phones and a few others i can't remember

    if they do break its usually because of either, dust, water or wear...this lumix had issues with dust and wear, 60,000 shots and it died...but i still tried to fix it outside a Yurt in Kyrgestan before the sunset!!!

    Well you can certainly put me down as "interested". I hope you can pull it off (with minimal headaches).

    Paul,

    Subscribed. Very cool. I really like RTW threads especially when it contains great photography like yours. I've turned several folks onto your website and have added it under my links page. :thumb

    these are jaw-dropping photographs!

    I find myself really regretting all the times I've said "I'll just keep going a little further and then stop for photos"
