I was born in 1960 which makes me on the other side of a half century old. I spent the early part of my life growing up in a military household, the result of which was my good fortune to travel extensively through Canada and Europe.

My first camera was a gift from my parents for graduating grade school. It was a Polaroid Land Swinger...a camera I still own though have not used for many decades!

Throughout my life I have owned a number of brands and types of cameras from Kodak Brownies to a Agfa-Gevaert C110. In my 20's I discovered SLR's and my learning curve took a steep climb.

I currently own and use Nikon and Nikkor products though I am by no means a 'fan-boy' to any particular brand. Once you start buying lenses and strobes for a singular brand...you end up having a lot of money tied into that brand and changing it becomes an expensive prospect.

My choice of subjects is, and always has been, landscapes and macro work. I suppose you could say the 'Alpha and Omega' of the world. While I have done limited portraits and human studies, and some 'Urbanscapes'...I by far prefer the natural world around me. As a child I was never happier than when I was wandering the forests and woods of where ever I lived. For me, the world of nature and the seasons offer an ever changing and wonderful subject matter. Like the youthful version of myself, this aging codger still prefers the company of trees, animals and nature to the company of people. A preference that has only become stronger with age.

I am hoping that love of nature and landscape has shown itself in my work. I truly hope that these little patches of pixels give the viewer a brief escape from the everyday crush of stress and society.

Hmmmm. Ok I see this is comments for the guestbook, not for individual photos. Would it be possible to annotate each photo with a page number?
