Photographs 2003

Photos from other years:

The highlight of 2003 was our sabbatical vacation in the USA. The low point was the death of my Father Duncan in November.

After every 5 years of service with Adobe, employees are rewarded with a 3 week paid sabbatical vacation. We added an extra week to that to be able to enjoy the longest vacation of our life. 4 weeks and 3 days of freedom from the normal grind of life. It was incredible. We spent 1 week in Alaska followed by 3 weeks on the East Coast of the USA. We explored from Washington DC to Maine and visited Philadelphia, New York and Boston. We did museums, battle fields of the civil war, Cape Cod, visited friends, and did lots of walks.

Best of all, I completed both my projects before leaving the office and returned to find everything under control. I gained no weight. So it was stress-free from beginning to end. Even arriving back at work was pleasant.

Another highlight of the year was the Khanna Wedding in June. I enjoyed a visit from my son Jamie from England - while Ali was in England for a couple of months. We enjoyed a visit in England at New Year from my Finnish friend Veli Veikko Niskanen. We had a trip to Scotland in May - sadly the last time I was to see my father. I've chosen not to publish photographs taken in Largs in November on our trip to his funeral.

Unfortunately, Ali and I couldn't attend

I purchased a Sony Cybershot DSC-S85 Digital Camera in March 2002 and I love it - it's a 4mb device and easy to use.

I liked the camera so much I decided to spend some money on a digital SLR and I purchased a Canon Rebel EOS Digital Rebel 6mb SLR in September 2003 - just fantastic!

I've had a lot of fun writing some desktop software to manage the photographs - including the web photo publisher used on this site.

I'm indebted to my friend Veli-Veikko Niskanen in Finland for the stylesheet and gif's used to display the photographs.
