Hi, I’m Tim Trott. I’m a creative photographer, traveller, astronomer and software engineer with a passion for self-growth and a desire for personal challenge.
This is my blog, a place for me to share my experiences, knowledge and photography. I love to help people by writing articles and tutorials about my hobbies that I’m most passionate about. I hope you enjoy reading my articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
