What’s in a name? Well, my name, Tim Tyson, is more common than I would have thought, especially since I rarely meet anyone named “Tim.” But there are several Tim Tysons, and recently I learned of another. In the digital era, things swirling around name can easily get confused1.

I shot this pano from Dana Villas the morning we left Santorini. This is an exceptionally beautiful place.
More pictures to come. (I shot over 2,400 photos on this trip. It will take a bit of time to process and upload them all.)
About 3,600 years ago the volcanic Island of Santorini (It’s original name meant circular.) exploded. All that… Continue reading

More, much more to come in the days to follow. I shot nearly 2,500 pictures of the Pacific Coast: Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Santa Monica, Cambria, Big Sur, Point Lobos, and San Fransisco to name a few. I shot over a dozen panoramas–a big first. Below is a mapped overview of the vacation travel starting in southern California,… Continue reading
