I have been taking photographs for a long time. Retirement has provided the incentive and time to figure out what can I “do” with my love for photography (and the thousands of photos on my hard drive). I am one of the almost one million people that have Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s adds a few new wrinkles to “still”” photography. It is a constant reminder to embrace every day. Photography helps me do that. I relish heading out on a hike hoping to find an interesting image to share with you.

Preparing this website has been a bit of an epiphany. I am not doing this to start a photography. There are lots and lots of people that take wonderful photos. I do this because I love taking photographs. For me, photography is about the challenge of bringing you an interesting image. How to I translate the beauty of the world around us into a photograph? Is there a different way to look at things? Can I take you to times and places you don’t go? There are amazing images all around us. We need to slow down, look and take the picture. My eye focuses on the world around us – landscapes, buildings, flowers… I love the peace waiting for the sun to rise. There are so many colors, textures and shapes. I try to capture images that you will want to see again.
