Welcome to my photo gallery. I have been interested in photography all my life. One of my first cameras was a Minolta Autocord which I still have and use occasionally. It was a gift from my father who also loved photography. He taught me how to look at life from a different perspective and to never take yourself too seriously. So here they are. Some old and some new. Some serious and some just for fun. Enjoy!

Bio

There isn't much I can say about myself (see lesson #2 learned from my father). I have three wonderful sons (don't call me Fred) and two beautiful granddaughters. We love vacations at the lake, the outdoors, the Atlanta Braves, cookouts and each other. I have a Nikon D70s, N50 and a Minolta Autocord. My sons are camera shy and my granddaughters the reverse. So you can "picture" who gets all the "Press". When not focusing on them I shoot everything from macro to landscape photography but I try to capture more that just an image.

"Look beyond what you seeā€¦" -Rafiki
