I'm Khürt Williams, and I work as an information security architect. Decades ago, I immigrated from the Caribbean country of St. Vincent & the Grenadines for university. I live in the New Jersey suburb of Montgomery Township, a few miles from Princeton University. I started blogging in October 2001, bouncing around between various platforms before settling on WordPress in November 2005. This blog is an outlet for my random thoughts on open source software, Apple computers and information technology. However, after a few years, it morphed into a photoblog.
I am an avid casual amateur1 photographer. I photograph whatever light catches my eye. I am attracted to moody landscapes and cityscapes. I make all my photographs with an iPhone 11 Pro, Fuji X-T3 mirrorless camera, or Minolta XD-11 35mm film camera. I often use my Minolta and Pentax film lenses adapted to my Fuji.
I occasionally write experience reports on cameras, lenses, film stocks, film simulation recipes, photography techniques and software. I blog about all kinds of stuff: my process, family, and how it all fits together or doesn't.
I love being outdoors, listening to the sounds of nature, the wind in the trees, birds calling to each other, and water flowing over the rocks in a stream. For me, it's a form of therapy, a break from the world's worries.

- I love the Cambridge English Dictionary definition of the word amateur: “Taking part in an activity for pleasure, not as a job.” ↩
