Hello friends (and welcome cyberspace strangers); thank you for making the effort to visit my web-based storage shed. Many of the images here are not originally in digital format, but are based on that archaic medium called 'film', because I've been shooting since I first picked up a camera in the late 70s in college.
Although there is still a great deal I don't know about digital image formation and manipulation, I like to keep things simple most of the time and enjoy the composition of the image more than anything else, just like the 'old days'.

I certainly don't miss loading medium or large format film or waiting for processing, and I am very pleased with the results I obtain with my new Canon EOS 7D along with a junior-sized Canon G1X, which is a terrific camera for travel.

I've been told on more than one occasion that I don't photograph enough people, but I photograph what I like and what I like most is being alone with a camera, exploring beautiful and interesting places on my own schedule. Landscapes and nature are my primary targets, and if a human is part of the scene, wonderful. Although no one has ever accused me of being introverted, I have a tough time asking strangers if I can include them in a photograph, and I usually seek locations that don't include many people intentionally.

Bottom line: I'm having fun and enjoying whatever moves me at a particular moment, and that's all that matters.....
