Photojournalist and writer
Introduction
Just a wanderer through the universes, virtual and real, in search of fun and new things to see.

I'm photojournalist and writer, sometimes an arts critic as well as being a literacy advocate and environmentalist. 

I'm a big fan of jazz, swing, the blues, classical music- anything except country.

“To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things – machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see our work – our paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to: the women that men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed;”
Henry Luce, Life Magazine, 1936
