I live in western Oregon and retired as an electrician/millwright in 2004. My love for photography started as a teenager with black & white. In the 60s I had a 35mm Fujica 750 film camera. Upon entering the navy and work after, there wasn't much time for photography and I really didn't get back into it seriously until around 2002 and my first digital camera. I now use a Nikon D300 and several point & shoot cameras. I love to travel and hike capturing nature and landscapes, my favorite, but will shoot most anything. I also love night photography.
