I’m a software engineer by day, so it seems appropriate to start off my first blog post with “Hello World” J For those who are unfamiliar the classic first program that you write in a programming language is one that outputs the words “Hello World”.
When I’m not working my greatest passions are enjoying nature, photography and travel. I combine the three together whenever possible utilizing photography to record and share the natural beauty and wildlife that I find.
My goals for this blog:
- To share some of the phenomenal locations I've visited in hopes of inspiring others to visit. I believe that travel helps preserve the environment by encouraging others to learn and care about it. It also provides an economic incentive for the locals to preserve the area.
- To tell the stories around some of the photographs.
- To provide tips on traveling to a location. I can’t be a substitute for a travel guide, but I can provide tips based on my research and experience.
- An outlet for the fun photos that tell the story, but aren't worthy of a photography site.
Posting timeline? That is a hard question. I hope to spend some time each week either posting photos to my photography site (http://www.ferraroimages.com) or posting here. However, we all know that life doesn’t always cooperate and I do need to find time to research and visit new locations. I’ll do what I can and hopefully overtime this will grow to be a resource on several locations.
Welcome and I hope this becomes a blog you enjoy.
