No Maserati, but to quote Joe Walsh "life's been good to me so far" = wellfed + my nationality. 

The photo is technically poor but it amuses me. One of my dogs (the male chocolate lab)  was sitting on my boat when one of my brother's dogs (a very domineering female) muscled in. My off-kilter sense of humour sees this as a harangued married man being told off by his wife. (But maybe I've just been married waaay too long...)

Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

I'm a pervert.




I hope that clears that up.  8)
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Mine comes from my days of competitive bodybuilding, needed a contact name when I moved to live and train in Thailand....Actually competed as Super Heavy, but that was too long as a contact...+ year of birth 1967.

Still live in Thailand, retired from competitive bodybuilding and all the associated chemicals...

The user name are my initials:
Rustom Peshotan Taraporevala

Peshotan is my father's name. Now if you thought that above was a mouthful, then this:
Rustom Peshotan Jivanji Khurshedji Coorji Ratanji Kahanji Nahnji Behramji Taraporevala

So that takes you to 1700 or thereabouts. There is documented evidence of Ratanji around 1750...

And the avatar is a photo of my first camera that I used for a looooooooooooooooong time...

Also...  My education is in neuroscience, I spent 8 years teaching neuroanatomy to medical students (as well as gross anatomy, histology, etc.).   For many years, my 'day job' was quantitative neuroanatomy - assessing gene expression changes in the brain.

My avatar is a self portrait - a sagittal MRI of me.

Show off! :) :)

I am not a professional photographer, so I thought "notapro" would be nice for a name.  The photo is of a gila monster, an animal indigenous to the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona (and to the part of northern Mexico directly south of Arizona).  Seeing the gila monster brings to mind my favorite kind of weather: hot!

Sanj is short for Sanjay.

I like this photo, more so because it was taken without any prep, so made it my profile. :)

The first two letters are my initials, ab is for "aus Berlin" - from Berlin, where I used to live when I was in need for a username. The numbers are a mix of several things and were necessary because someone with the same initials in Berlin had the same idea.

Norman Bates is the crazy guy from Psycho. This was my war game for online gaming back in the times of Quake 3 and Age of Empires 2 (hint: launch date, not this millennium). Then I took it as my forum name too.

Picture: a toy that my girlfriend gave me; she bought it because it looks pretty much like me  ::)
