Who am I?

I am who you see me as, and there's nothing I can do about that, but to help you along the way here's a few pointers;

- Young professional come student
- Part way through completing my degree
- Interested in the built and natural environments
- Enjoys a mixture of the tranquility of country life but the vibrant life of cities
- Loves quality food, but can't cook it
- Loves quality photographs, but can't take them
- Currently living in Bristol, UK
- Favourite quote: 'Denial ain't just a river in Egypt' - Mark Twain
- ...Oh and it would be rude not to mention my delight to be associated with Moblog :P

How old is your Moblog?

I created my Moblog in June 2005, making it 4 years and 2 months old.

What am I most likely to highlight?

It has to be said that I'm a sucker for stunning landscape and seascape photographs - Brownie points go to those incorporating magnificent sunsets. Toddy's recent post ticked all the necessary boxes. Photos of fantastic architecture are always welcome in my book too.

Quirky images, oddities and generally those which make me laugh all have the potential to be highlighted.

A highlight is only part of recognising an exceptional post, however. Sometimes meanings, stories or descriptions submitted with the photograph can be equally, if not more, highlight worthy than the photograph itself.

How do I prefer to take photographs?

I'm probably one of the few mods who doesn't own a 'proper' camera, for want of a better word. I do own, however, what I consider to be a reasonable compact, that is my Samsung NV10. It works and suits my needs perfectly. Any better piece of kit would be wasted with me, without the talent and photographic eye to go behind it. Having said that I would like to invest in a better piece of kit in the near future. On the move photos are usually from my Sony Ericsson C510.

Where do I see Moblog in the future?

Without wanting to repeat what has already been mentioned, I think my views on this are similar to many users of the site and newly recruited moderators. Previously oblivious to the hard work and efforts which went on 'behind the scenes' with regards to the development of Moblog, I just accepted the site and the great community incorporated within for what it was.

Since becoming more involved, I have began to appreciate the enormity of the tasks which have been undertaken and the hard work and sacrifices which have taken place to get Moblog this far. It has had its recent hitches but I believe the future is brighter and the path which lies ahead waiting to be discovered will ensure this was not done in vain.

I would like to see the moderators and community at large strive for a greater, more transparent site which is continually developing so that every single user can make the most of the wonderful site that is Moblog. It gives me great pleasure to be associated with the site and to assist in the little ways I can.

Bang on with the highlight definition! It's all about the post not the picture - but that is a bloody good picture by the way...
