Gay Quaker librarian and writer, happy with my helpmate Jim.
Though my images are mostly Southern (so far), I’m a long-ago transplanted Yankee: Florida (2000), by way of South Carolina (1965), by way of Boston (1960), by way of Ohio (1950).
Came out in 1973. Jim and I met in high school eight years earlier, when we were both still in the closet (not the same one, unfortunately, or we’d have saved a lot of time).
We became a couple in 1985, were married under the care of our Quaker Meeting in 1994, and got legal in Massachusetts on July 19, 2011.
I’ve only had a camera during brief periods until now. However, I’ve been taking pictures in my head for 40-50 years. I finally decided I should try showing someone else what I see.
Currently I use a Canon PowerShot SX120 IS. Surprisingly powerful for a point-and-shoot…though the auto-focus insists on focusing on the grass behind the blossom, rather than the blossom itself.
I hope eventually to graduate to something without “training wheels.” :-D
