I am not a professional photographer. But I do take pictures. Lots of pictures. I've been
doing this for about 45 years, ever since I purchased my first Nikon F in High School,
back in 1970. Since then I've accumulated hundreds of negatives (both color and B&W)
and volumes of Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides. I am just dusting them off finally,
and hope to scan the best ones soon; a monumental task at best. Although I don't make
my living directly from photography, I receive tremendous satisfaction and gratitude from
each picture that I shoot. I try to present simplicity and balance in my photography.
These are the same things that I crave in my own life. I am drawn to simple images and
shapes, and attempt to catch the observer's eye with bright colors and interesting textures.
Recently I discovered the amazing process know as Polaroid Image Transfer. The result
of this technique is a soft, dream-like painter's representation of an otherwise sharp
image. You can find out more about this technique below, on my first link.
