Avid photographer with a favorite style and vision on landscapes.
Like to think that learning is one of my greatest assets. Always in hope that I can apply that in my love of capturing a moment. Firmly believe in the heart of photography is what the snap is of. Why that image? Why that light? Why that angle? Why that time of day? Why that film or medium format. Why B&W, why not color? Why?
People I admire: Colonel Norman D. Vaughan (1905-2005)
