Introduction & Gallery

 

I think l’ve been Word Pressganged – No, l’m sure l’ve been Word Pressganged. One minute l was securely sailing along in my own little world without too many cares or worries – dabbling with brush, crayon and camera for my own gratutitous pleasure – Then suddenly, bang, the WordPress Gang get in my head and hijack untold hours of my life that are now dedicated to making redstuffdan the best l possibly can.

I do not remember the exact moment, or circumstances in which l was Shanghaied by them but l know my life is not the same. I am addicted to my Canon camera and iPhone and look at everything as though through a lens seeking the perfectly framed photo, l listen more intently to others and read, with an insatiable appetite, about art, literature, the human condition and my grand passions wine, golf, photography and France..

Although l sense l have arrived in this place against my will l know l am really enjoying the experience and being Word Press-ganged is not such a bad thing after all.

    Your photos are marvelous! I know what you mean about being WordPress-ganged. But it is rewarding all the same, no matter how we came to be here!

    I saw a post tonight by a photographer that says work has been stolen from him and a list of other photographers’ blogs. . https://iphonephotog.wordpress.com/2015/07/22/our-work-has-been-stolen/
    . . The post is a long discussion He does not give the thieves’ site address but will provide it privately, in the event that you may want to check if you have been victimized too. I really hope not !

    Wonderful photographs Dan. I love the word, Word Pressganged. Hahaha, it is exactly what happened to me. I posted a few pics on a blog for another friend blogger to see and BAM! Don’t know how, but here I am like clockwork every day, as I am retired. I love the blogs, the photographs and the information floating around being shared. It is a world in itself! 🙂
