Having captured yesterday’s shot of the jetty in Ton Sai Bay, I walked out along the jetty to get a different angle on the fishing boats – a tighter framing. Below is the result rendered in black & white, and below that the color version. As an indication of how friendly I found the local people here, note the fisherman just left of center of the photo waving at me. It’s funny considering the changes in my photographic behavior pre and post digital. Pre digital I would shoot sparingly. I had to carry a bunch of rolls of film with me and ration the number of shots per day. I recently bought at 32Gb card that holds over 1,000 images from my Canon EOS 5D MarkII that I keep in continuous shoot mode, so I squeeze the shutter and it whirrs away. My ratio of keepers has gone down and the amount of images I need to edit through has exploded as a consequence.
Your thoughts and comments are important to me.

Richard Davis – Photographer
Richard Davis is an International Photographer based in Katy, Texas. Katy, a former rice farming community and oilfield, is now more commonly viewed as a suburb 25 miles west of Houston.
Originally from Swindon in England, from an early age Richard wanted to travel. With a degree in Geophysics, he entered the oil exploration industry which, over the next 11 years, took him to live and work in Libya, South Africa, Brunei, Libya (again), Tunisia, Dubai, and Oman.
A change of track then brought him to the United States to lead a hazardous waste remediation project and that led into an IT Management career. While in Houston he met and married his wife, Karen. Richard's IT Management career took them to Paris, France, where they lived for two years before returning to Houston in early 2000.
In addition to his library of slide and print images from around the world, Richard went fully digital in 2006 when Canon introduced the EOS 5D and has continued to extend his digital image library. He uses a range of cameras but his current favorite remains the Canon EOS 5D Mk II.
Richard takes on a broad range of subjects and his images have appeared in corporate publications, local magazines and various web sites.
Richard lives with his wife Karen, of Karen Davis Design, and their two children (and 3 fish).
