  Yeah, that's me on "Platform 2 Somewhere in England, 1971". Some would say it's "dated", but I prefer "vintage"!

Photography for me is a wonderful convergence of creative art and technology. I think the viewer mostly appreciates the creative aspects or results, while again, for me, the technology involved in cameras, lenses, film, chips, computers and printers is quite exciting and makes the creative process come alive. I got my first Brownie camera when I was eight years old, had a few dark rooms along the way, worked for Kodak for 20 years in the heyday of film; and now enjoy my digital camera, sophisticated computer software, and an equally sophisticated inkjet printer. All of that technology empowers me to create, and to hopefully produce pleasing photographs.

It's fair to say that I don't have a singular focus on what subjects I photograph. I love beaches, birds, blossoms, boats, bugs, etc., but there is a common theme that cuts across and though all of these categories. That common theme is the incredible beauty of nature -- whether in flowers, bugs, boats or people -- that we can find everywhere we look, if we really take time to see. When there is also an element of spontaneous life, even better. My goal is to capture as much of that beauty as possible, and share it with others -- others like you! -:)
