It’s all about capturing a moment in time. About discovering scenes that, when shared, generate interest and appeal.
I am absorbed in the passion for photography and derive great pleasure in being a part of this superb artistic community.

John Butler is a resident of Northern California. A builder, by trade – but spiritually, a naturalist and photographer.

  • Hi Stormy – Oh My Gosh – This happened and I didn’t even notice it. Must have been the 11 children we had here, over the holidays that took my attention away. Now, that I am “back” I want to thank you and the group. Being featured is such a delightful experience. John B
