Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    he really is, and the speed at which he completes these is amazing. We have a couple of his works here on the Vineyard and they brighten up the beach house
