We live in a beautiful place.
Photography has allowed me to explore this beauty more deeply and to share it with others.
My first serious interest in photography started when I was a graduate student in biochemistry at Berkeley back in the late 60’s. I had the opportunity to purchase a good quality camera and use the darkroom in the lab. Later as a biology teacher, I enjoyed photographing wild flowers and intertidal invertebrates. In the various twists and turns of that time, I let my camera go - reluctantly.
During my 45 + years in Northern California I have been soaking in the beauty that surrounds us. In the last twenty years I have refocused on photography making use of my interest in computers and ever improving digital cameras to celebrate those images.
For me Photography is...
Going to – or discovering – a special place.
For the ephemeral, it might be a race.
Sometimes what’s seen is a matter of chance.
While getting the right angle’s a special dance.
On the computer there’s more to explore
Often seeing beauty not seen before.
Sharing it with others is a great deal of fun.
I salute the artist in everyone.
