I have been a paraplegic since 1978 from a car accident.
Although I may be confined to a wheelchair, it has not stopped me from enjoying the world of photography. I use a Canon Powershot S3 which is my very first digital! I bout it in May ‘07 and still haven’t figured out how to use any of the settings except Auto~~ho hum…guess I’ll be a beginner forever!
I live in a city near Los Angeles, CA, alone with my two beautiful cats, Monkey and Cinnimon. I attend church on Sundays and have many friends. I enjoy the people here at RB and love the photography! Please enjoy my photos and feel free to comment!

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

I grew up with practical parents who had been frightened by the Great Depression. A mother, God love her, who washed aluminum foil after she cooked in it, then reused it. She was the original recycle queen, before they had a Name for it… A father who was happier getting old shoes fixed than buying new ones. / Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends lived barely a …
