You'd think that I painted in this sky - - - but NO, that was what I was presented with tonight at Parque Central in Leon, just after the sun had set and before the sky went black.

Story
Tagline
Visual Artist and Storyteller with a Camera
Introduction
Musician - guitarist and singer in Moods Music from 1973 - 1976

Significant - married Anne May 8'th, 1976.

Professional Photography - first paying jobs (portraits and weddings) in 1979 using a Mamyia twin lens and Photofloods. Created the paying "Love Story Session" in 1985 as an alternative to free "traditional engagement pictures". Began processing all of my color negs and prints in 1986 using Jobo processors. Main Street studio from 1989 - 1998. Fully web based since 2002.

Computer Coding - 1990, using my Atari 520ST coded a custom "Apple like" GUI with 3D pushable buttons and animations, created a relational database from scratch, built a functional clock and calendar using and adapting code from a huge IBM book that included pages and pages of coding a clock and calendar (that I didn't understand), started work on image file compression and storage compression algorithms, and built a Picture Framing application for doing all calculations, displaying a graphic showing the proportions of the mat and frame on the screen, and calculating the prices (using my homemade database).

Web Coding - Registered www.robertwatcher.com in 2002. Learned PHP and within 2 months had built my website as well as 2 additional dynamic web applications for business clients. Over the years have produced several popular single purpose FREE web apps and  utilities, primarily for photographers. Developed the (for sale) "phpCrazySite" HTML based website application for photographers, in 2006 - based on the centered flash applications being used.

Premium Web Hosting - Providing photographers and small business with a competively priced, personalized web hosting service. Since 2007 loyal clients have benefited from a fast response and generous help in all matters.

Significant - currently 4 successful adult children, 3 with spouses who Anne and I love, as well as 5 beautiful grandchildren.

I am a happy and satisfied man.

It was nice getting to know Alex and Karla to learn from their vast experience in the coffee production field. We purchased some coffee to take back to Leon with us. Nice having them speak English as well.

We were pleasantly surprised finding this place to stay the night. From the street you couldn't tell there would be such a space. The room was inexpensive, clean, fan over the bed and importantly HOT watcher shower.

We enjoyed our meal and having the balcony open to the setting sun. About as romantic as you can get on a Main street downtown.

A nice place to sit and relax while walking the city. Didn't have a coffee, so can't speak on the quality of that.
