About Craig Strachan…
The important stuff
View the world through a lens, and create a visual diary of your experience. I am passionate about photography, and am seldom seeing without a camera in my hand.
I started my blog in 2005, and over the years it has grown into an online photo-journal of my life and experiences. You will get a glimpse of myself, my experiences, and my travel. I am a WordPress fanatic, and love to use that amazing platform.
I have been programming since 1984, and have programmed in most languages. I work as an IT integration, BI & data architect.
These are just a few places that have featured my pictures.
