Yes, as it says above, this is, the personal website of a guy called, perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, Alan.

I'm talking exclusively here about photography-related matters, and the content consists of a series of articles or essays about subjects related to this extraordinary art and science. "Photography" includes videography here, so I may stray into video-related matters.

alan {at} [] will find me, should you care to discuss anything I've written about. I welcome any feedback.

Hey gringo, we don't use no steenking cookies here


I'm trying to make friends outside Facebook while applying the same principles.

Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I've eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I did the night before, what I'll be doing later, and with whom.

I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and me doing the gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and just doing the sort of things anybody and everybody does every day.

I also listen to their conversations, give them the thumbs up and tell them I like them.

And it works just like on Facebook! I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.
