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 October 2001. 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.” ↩
