Intro
Hi, my name's Richard. I bought my first digital camera, a Canon EOS 300D, at the end of 2004.

In February 2006 my girlfriend and I embarked on a one-year, Round-The-World trip starting in Brazil and continuing through South America for 6 months taking in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. In September 2006 we flew to New Zealand followed by Sydney, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, China and a 'short' train ride from Beijing to Moscow before we flew back to England from St. Petersburg.

In May 2006, in Bolivia, I had my EOS 300D stolen and consequently lost about 500 photographs which was far more upsetting than losing the camera itself! Finally, in Sepetember 2006 we had reached New Zealand where I bought a Canon EOS 30D to replace it. In the intervening 4 months we shared my girlfriend's EOS 350D so thankfully I was still able to take photographs for the entire trip.

In total I took nearly 10,000 photos on my Round-The-World trip and although many of them probably aren't up to posting standards you'll hopefully still see a fair number as I start the mammoth task of sorting through and uploading them to TrekEarth. I hope you enjoy my gallery. Thanks for reading this and thanks for taking an interest in my photos.

Incidentally, if you'd like to look at my partner's photos from our trip then this link will take you to her TrekEarth homepage: Lynn's Homepage

I welcome ALL constructive critiques, whether positive or negative. If there's something you do or do not like about a photo of mine; if you can see a way to improve it or you think it's just a waste of space, please let me know why and how - It's how I hope to improve!

To make it easier to view my gallery I have created a couple of themes. Namely:

and

Take care,

Rich

Note from 04/2007 - I have just created an account on TrekLens if you want to have a look there too!

Note from 06/2007 - My girlfriend Lynn, mentioned above, is now my wife - we were married on 28/06/2007!
