David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

    No, Semester at Sea has two voyages a year running accredited college courses for ~600 undergraduate students. I was on the voyage as a life-long-learner, taking some college courses and taking a lot of pictures — both at sea and in the countries and ports where we stopped. There usually are college level photography courses that life-long-learners can attend (but only if you sign up for the full semester voyage. They used to have photo workshops during the Enrichment Voyages, that were held in between Semester Voyages — but these were discontinued a few years ago.
