Cile and I were treated to a dinner and show in San Francisco by our son Doug. Spent two really neat days (and nights) around Union Square and Chinatown. Had some time to dip my toe into some Street Photography. This could become an addiction!

In Sydney, when I was taking a picture of the library, I actually drew a small group of on-lookers.  One guy asked me what magazine I worked for.  :D

Once they found out that I was off the ship that had just tied up in Kings Crossed, the interest vanished.

I've always liked the hills in the background of most California landscapes.  It really provides depth.

Story
Introduction

I love creating and sharing images of nature that stir the soul. I enjoy being in nature, and have since my early days growing up in rural New York State, and continuing to the present in beautiful California. Making photographs of the beauty I see in Nature is very spiritual for me and I delight in sharing that beauty. People often tell me that my photographs look like paintings and I can’t express how thrilling it is to hear that feedback. Their appreciation, verbally and through their purchases tells me I’ve been successful in creating and sharing the art that can be found in nature. This whole endeavor has been incredibly fun and fulfilling, and I intend to keep doing this for many more years.

Bragging rights
To date my photographs have made their way into calendars, CD covers, promotional videos and a variety of personal and corporate collections including Kaiser Permanente, Old Republic Title Company, The Medical Center of Central Georgia and a host of law and other professional offices. My work has also been seen in such exhibit venues as The Triton Museum, Santa Clara, The Elemental Arts Gallery, Los Gatos California, The Work of Our Hands Gallery, Atlanta, Georgia, and The Macon Arts Gallery, Macon Georgia.
