Always click on the photographs. This will expand them from their, sometimes cropped, little holding cell to the full extent of the browser window. Expand your browser to full screen and the image size will expand as well. With the introduction of 4K and 5K screen technology, I have bumped up the resolution of the more recently uploaded photographs. The magnificent detail can only be seen by expanding the photographs.
This site has been running since April 9, 1997. It started first as a webpage (1997), then a blog (2005) and most recently a portal (2012). The focus of the site has evolved to become a record of travels and photography, peppered with occasional comments and observations.
While travel photography represents much of my work, my portfolio includes other genres such as architectural photography, landscapes, cityscapes, and conceptual. I don't consider myself tied to any one style or subject. I just enjoy whatever comes along.
As of December 1, 2009 in the United States the Federal Trade Commission requires that bloggers and other web authors clearly disclose “their connection, if any, with the advertisers; and also reveal the receipt of free products and or payments from the advertisers“.
I have none. I have no relationship with advertisers; I receive no free products; I receive no payments; I receive no donations. I pay for all costs associated with running this web site, the hertha.com hertha.ca and journey-to-the-east.ca domains, etc.
