Me in a nutshell: passionate about photography, especially nature subjects.

In my descriptions, I often refer to “my local botanical garden,” which is South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in California, USA. If you are in the area, let me know. I love meeting other photographers!

Published on Blurb: my 60-page photo book, Art in Nature: A Little Book of Nature’s Wonders. The book is available in softcover and hardcover (with upgraded premium paper) as well as ebook format (for iPad, iPhone and iPad Touch) at the Blurb Bookstore. You can preview ALL PAGES (nothing held back) from the link below:

Mostly away from RB for a while

Life matters are conspiring to take up most of my time and energy, meaning that I will be mostly absent from RB for a time.
