Original Photo Blog

Hello, welcome to one of the web's original and oldest photo blogs. johnkane.com is over ten years old! The domain and site went online in 1997, and became this photo blog in 2001. The site is a hobby, combining interests in photography and programming. It's built in the original hacker spirit -- cobbled together from bits of technology, code and many photos.

Hope you enjoy the site!

Cheers, John Kane
