I am self-taught in both photography and graphic enhancements…and what a fabulous, intensive journey I’m having!!!
My creative vision goes BEYOND the camera shutter..right into the Digital Dark Room where ART pieces emerge…each one reflecting a piece of my soul.

    I have heard that there are some great old ghost town out in the desert in California but you have to have four wheel drive to get to them. This is excellent as a B&W

  • I don’t know about THOSE kind of ghost towns….if I can’t get there easily, or at least with a minimal of effort…I DON’T GO! lol:) Thanks for the kudos, buddy.
