About Quantum Tiger

The Quantum Tiger website features the work of Ian Coleman, a Middlesex-based amateur photographer specialising in wildlife and landscape photography. A few of my prints are available for purchase. If you'd like to buy something not given there, please drop me a line. With the exception of the picture of me (below) all the photographs on this site were taken by Ian Coleman.

The Quantum Tiger would like to say a big thank you to all those who have inadvertantly assisted in the creation of this site - but he's not going to, so I'll say it for him. Thanks go out to all those who have acompanied me on my many walks, and introduced me to interesting and intriguing places.

I am extremely grateful to the many producers of free software which have enabled the production and maintenance of this site. Particular mention should be given to PHP, MySQL, Notepad 2, and FileZilla (ftp software). In addition to the free stuff, I have also appreciated the sheer delight that is Adobe Photoshop Elements. If only all commercial software were this easy to use! Also very grateful to United Hosting for their high quality UK web hosting and fabulous customer service.

The Quantum Tiger is much the same as an ordinary tiger, except that he is virtual and doesn't really care about exactly where he is or how fast he is moving. A distant relative of Schrödinger's cat, although he would be a tad more dangerous if you met him in a dark alley. At this particular point in time, however, the Quantum Tiger is feeling mellow and well fed. If you ask him very nicely he may just collapse his waveform long enough to share some of his digital wares.
