Square of Miracles
I'm back from my trip to Europe!  Here is Pisa Baptistery, the Pisa Cathedral and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) in Pisa, Italy.
In 2 weeks it will be Good Friday.  As a child I was fascinated by this statue in the cemetery of my home town.

Hello everyone.  So apparently it has been over 6 years since I changed my journal.  The reason being this time is I will be going to Europe for a week in May 2018!  I have never been, but always wanted to go. 

We arrive in Barcelona, Spain and the Cruise begins the next day.  We will visit the following ports"

Naples, Italy                 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

Rome                              6:00 am - 7:00 pm

Florence/Pisa              7:00 am - 7:00 pm

Cannes, France             8:00 am  -  6:00 pm

Palma, Majorca, Spain     1:00 pm -   8:00 pm

We arrive in back Barcelona, Spain at 5 am and fly out the next day.  Please PM if you would like further details about the dates.

I figured I would post it here on dA since there are so many people from Europe, or who have traveled there that can give me some tips and suggestions as to what I should do while in Barcelona and these ports.  Apparently the Film Festival will be going on while we are in Cannes, anybody have tips how to enjoy that without being a movie star?  I would also be interested in Cruise tips as well, it is with Norwegian.

I love traveling and wish I could do more.  I have been to China twice since 2014 as my partner is from there, it was a great experience and her relatives were very good to us, I got to a lot of the interesting sites.

I always meant to say that perhaps dA could be used a as travel exchange program, or perhaps in some ways it already is?  We live in Ottawa, a very beautiful and photographic city so if somebody wants to stay with us they are welcome, if it seems like a good fit with the timing and what not, and perhaps they can return the favor?

Anyway I used to interact with a lot of good people here, from all over the world.  I haven’t been that active for years now so maybe everybody I knew is gone, so I wouldn't be surprised if I only got a few replies :)  You can also send a PM about the travel stuff if you like.

Overlooking Ottawa
**UPDATE**  Jan 26, 2018.  I went back and found a better version of this photo, replacing the first one I posted**
Overlooking Confederation Square in Ottawa, that monument is the Cenotaph, the War Memorial. The castle like building is the Chateau Laurier hotel. Beyond that is the Byward Market.

Print is full size will not have my signature visible.


My hockey card

Current Residence: Ottawa, Ontario. I'm originally from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite photographer: I'll go with Karsh, he was also based in Ottawa!
Favourite cartoon character: Homer Simpson
Update:  I'm back to living in Ottawa!

I haven't been around for a while, life kind of got in the way of my deviantarting.  I'm still very involved with photography though; I am supplying photos to stock sites.  It's a great way to supplement your income, especially if you like me and love taking pics anyway.  If anybody is interested please drop me a line, I can give you the scoop on the various sites I use, plus if you say I referred you when you register I can get money when your pics are downloaded.

I'm always looking to do shoots with models so if you are interested let me know.  I have a line on a studio I can rent.  There's lots of opportunity for models if they want to pose for stock photos, or if you just want to do non-stock/artistic shoots to build your portfolio I'm okay with that as well.

Last spring I bought a D700, I am very pleased with it.  I also have a 2.8 24-70 and a 2.8 70-200 lens.  So I can go 2.8 from 24 to 200!  I also have my 1.8 50 mm prime lens.  Anyway I hope to start spending time here again.  

The usual stuff in my journals…

Hello my name is Paul, I took my orginal dA name, T-Hip, from a Canadian rock band, The Tragically Hip, but then I switched it to my real name :)  I'm from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia but I live in Ottawa now.

There's no need to apologize for faving and running I don't mind that at all, I like getting favs :)  I appreciate your support!

I opened a Redbubble account and have started to slowly upload pics there, let me know if there is a print you'd like to see there.  The address is…

I have another deviantArt account at :iconkeenphotography: feel free to visit me there as well :) Here are some features from  that account
