For whatever reason, and why, I'll never know why Jeb was already taken as a username, so in exasperation, and frustration, I just tagged my camera in front of it, and now I am sort of stuck with this silly moniker.

And I can never switch equipment! LOL!!!


CanonJeb--nah....

SonyJeb--nah...

OlyJeb--nah....

KD10Jeb--nah.....

LeicaJeb...hmmmm.... Has ring to it. Kinduva "cha-ching" ring to it.....


HasselbladJeb?

Mine is a reference to the fact that I love soul music in general, particularly the Sam & Dave song. Oh, and the year of my birth.

Back in 1996 I started writing a weekly email newsletter about my automotive inspired, engineering skewed observations on what it was like to be a new parental unit. My daughter was 2 weeks old at the time. The newsletter started out as the Becca Update but soon was renamed as the A&T Update. Of course the & sign wasn't allowed as an email address so I used atupdate. A&T stood for Amy & Tim. If you want to know why she got top billing when I did all of the writing (besides the obvious), just reverse the letters. I wrote the A&T Update for 10 years and have 500 plus issues of memories for both my kids to read when they get older.

Oh, I also signed each issue with ...

Becca's and JD's Dad

Edit: Because I spell like an engineer.

Caravela is portuguese for caravel, which is a portuguese ship used in the golden age of discovery by the great portuguese navigators such as ferdinand magellan, bartolomeu dias and vasco da gama during their epic voyages! It was the ship used during the first circumnavigation of the globe. The reason I chose it as my username, was that I wanted something to represent my nationality and to convey my very own journey of discovery in the world of photography!

Tygerr - sounds like Tyron, but cooler (or cornier, depending on your POV). It's what people around the office call me, which probably started because I tend to get over-enthusiastic about things at times which would lead to calls of "[Take it] easy, tiger..."
I just added the "Ty-" spelling to go with my name (and because I'm a fan of Blake's poetry). The double-r spelling at the end is because of the way Afrikaans people pronounce it (they roll the 'r' - like Dutch/Germanic pronounciation).

Grrr... :-)

My nicknames pre-internet, Larry became Lars became Mars.
Early internet: Too many people with the handle Mars, so I was NewYorkCityMars.
Shortened later to: citymars.

That's funny. Whenever I see your nick, it conjures up a completely different image for me, because in Afrikaans, a 'Dassie' is a cute little furry animal that looks like a large hamster/guinea pig. It's proper name is a Rock Hyrax apparently.
And in Afrikaans 'lem' is a blade, so Dassilem ('Dassie-blade') sounds like some crazed bunny killer ;-)

Here is a photo I snapped of some Dassies in Pretoria on Sunday...
