I'm Khürt Williams, and I work as an information security architect. Decades ago, I immigrated from the West Indies for university in the USA. I now live in the New Jersey suburb of Montgomery Township, a few miles from Princeton University. I started blogging regularly around October 2001, bouncing around between various platforms before settling on WordPress circa 2004. I purchased the domain on October 25, 2006. This website was an outlet for my random thoughts on open-source software, Apple computers, Linux and information technology. However, it morphed into an photoblog after several years.
I have been an avid casual amateur1 photographer for over thirty years. 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, a Fuji X mirrorless camera, or a Minolta 35mm film camera. I often use my Minolta 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.
