Portrait of a Common Sparrow

The first of many successful introductions to North America occurred when fifty pairs from England were released in Brooklyn, New York, in 1852. It now occurs from Northwest Territories to Darién Province, and it is one of the most abundant birds in North America

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at
