Describe yourself in five pictures or less!


I thought that this would be a neat thread. Hopefully there is not another one out there like this

Pretty straightforward, post five photos or less (these should be your photos!), and include a short caption as to why each one is uniquely you. I'll start.


This one describes me, because, well, it's literally a photo of me.


This one because I love my shrimp.


This picture describes me well because my bonsai trees are increasingly taking over my planted aquarium addiction


This is a good one because I love great food, especially when I prepare it myself


And this one because I enjoy my aquariums and aquascaping more than almost anything else!

Who's next?

Being on the lazy side I'll only use three pictures

I love to run track. After some long cold winter days of off season training I managed to surprise myself by making it onto Varsity for the 400m, 200m, 4x100m and a substitute for the 100m



Secondly I've really gotten into shrimp these past few months and have only scratched the surface as to what their is on this hobby. This is probably the only shrimp pic worth showing as of right now.



This last photo pretty much shows me as a person who likes the planted tank hobby and is still only scratching the surface as to what the hobby has to offer. As you can see the tank is barely grown in because naturally I set this tank up to be a slower growing tank

Nice! Maybe I should ask a mod to move this to The Lounge.

Nice pictures. I like bonsai but don't have the patience. The picture of the shrimp is awesome - how do you take such a clear picture?

Track/running must use a lot of calories, you won't have to worry eating the strawberry dessert.

Hello,


My real name is Kevin. I have chosen to work in the aquatics industry for most of my adult life. Around the globe in various locales i have been intimately involved with aquaculture, wholesale/export, high end installation and maintenance, retail, and local wholesale/product development.

I was an avid marathon runner and free diver



I enjoy nature on every level and love all animals though I am NOT a vegetarian



I love cars, and had a turbocharge nissan 240sx i had patiently upgraded to produce over 300bhp until it was destroyed along with me in a horrific accident nearly 4 years ago which nearly ended my life. it instead ended my travelling career and much of what i enjoyed doing with my time.



i now manage a 7000 square foot aquatics store in Vancouver, BC which keeps me busy, as i love setting up planted aquaria and watching them flourish



and my bengal ish terror cats

I am fascinated with the give and take of the natural world. What remains and what adapts.

I love the woods and my aquariums is my attempt to bring life into my home.

I paint, draw, and sculpt.




My aquarium.

I have a passion for everything relating to aquariums. I eat, sleep, and breathe it every day.


Traveling the world is something that i value greatly and enjoy. I always feel privileged to be able to visit other countries, meet new people, and try new things. I thoroughly believe that traveling to other countries is the best way to gain a better understanding of the world that we live in. I love experiencing other cultures, especially when i get to do just that by staying with host families.
(yes, i know i look freezing cold in this photo!)


I also think that service to others is one of the most important things in life. It should not be done for recognition, but for the satisfaction of helping others and improving the lives of your neighbors (no matter how close or far).


Hiking is one of the best ways to see the world. When life is hard, it is important to sit back and enjoy the view. Some things you can only see when you're high up!

I can do it in one, but it isn't my own.

Can I post it?
