Image of steam gauge, taken on The Delta Queen, Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The renown classic rock song “Proud Mary” written by American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Fogerty, was written about this vessel.

The Delta Queen and her identical twin the Delta King – called the million dollar boats – were fabricated from 1924 to 1927 on the River Clyde at the William Denny & Brothers Ltd., in California Dumbarton, Scotland and assembled that same year at Banner Island Shipyard in Stockton. The machinery was built by William Denny & Brothers Ltd., Dumbarton, Scotland. The paddlewheel shaft and the cranks were forged at Krupp Stahlwerke AG, Germany. The boats were completed on May 20, 1927.

I began my love of photography when I picked up my mother’s huge 6X8 Kodak bellows camera and tripped the shutter and flashbulb at age three.

My commercial work is represented internationally.

When I am not working, I am riding motorcycles, playing jazz guitar and reveling in nature at my rural cottage in the Cohutta Wilderness Area of North Georgia.

La vie est bonne!
