A Pirate Looks at his Logo...

Decided that I would throw some color onto my blog, so I started making a logo in photoshop... I found an older photo of me sitting atop a cliff in Banff with my hand in the air (most of you know it as the splash screen on my photography site), and then found a free world map photo online... after that I started thinking it looked somewhat like a treasure map.... and seeing as how I have dressed as a pirate on the ships quite a bit (and will continue for who knows how long) and actually kinda feel like a pirate sailing the seas quite a bit (and will continue for who knows how long)....it kinda fit. So i played some more.... then i wanted fire.... so i played some more....

3 hours go by....and voila.

please let me know what you think. personally, and i dont really like to beep my own horn...

...but beep beep! i REALLY like it :)


"Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
The cannons dont thunder, theres nothin to plunder
Im an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late"

-lyrics from Jimmy Buffet's "A Pirate Looks at Forty"

Michael, I like it. Of course we are pirate fans as well. Very cool picture. Now you must live up to the pirate life and go get the "booty"! (Watch out Grit!)
