I have been in love with and fascinated by photography since I was a child. I continued with it all through my teen and young adult years. I put the camera away after I was married and the demands of a new career took hold. About the only time I picked up the camera was for family vacations.Now retired, I find myself shooting again. I have totally embraced the digital age of photography. My creative juices are flowing again. I find it exhilarating to be able to create. And be creative.I will shoot just about any subject that captures my interest. Close up, landscape, seascapes, and street captures.It is my grandest hope and desire that you enjoy the images I have created. Regards,

*WEEKLY QUOTE: Surround yourself with people who are very positive, say no to negativity with a lot of conviction.
