I purchased my first camera; a little Brownie when I was in the eight grade 1956. I purchased my first Range Finder from Sears in 1966. I knew I was going to get an award winning picture in Vietnam.
Later I ended up with a Yashica RF. My next camera was a Pentax SLR. I thought the screwing in the lenses took to much time; so I got a Nikon with bayonet mounting. I have been with Nikon ever since. I use a D50 now and I use a 28-55mm, 55-250mm, and a 100-300mm Vivitar Micro. I have close up lens step 1 thru 3 and I use a Variable Polarizer.
I have been inspired by National Geographic, Arizona Highways, Look and Post magazines in the years past. Just about any portfolio excites me, taking good photos is an art of its own and many people have the eye for it.
I love traveling and recording those places that I have seen. I enjoy making DVD's of my travels with music and narration to enhance the show.
When people see my pictures and I get a favorable response I feel that I have accomplished my goal of sharing a little of what I have enjoyed and tried to capture for others to enjoy. I can take criticism I have broad shoulders.
I don't know that I have the technical expertise but what I try to do is capture the moment, the mood, the feeling; a moment of time that will be gone for ever.
What I like about digital you don't have to spend good photo op time in the dark room. I have been on digital for only a couple of years.
I hope you enjoy my photos that I take of the trails I have hiked, the rough back roads of this beautiful diverse country.
I am retired from the U.S. Army of 26 years. I live in my small rural home town in Missouri. The beautiful thing about the location of my home; is that I am centrally located for travel.
Oscar is my four legged best buddy. My wife Shirley puts up with both of us.
