A native New Yorker, officially a middle class baby-boomer with disposable income, 2 college educated kids and a most supportive wife of 49 years, I am the proud owner of plenty of photographic paraphernalia, many thousands of slides, negatives, digital images, and my continuing vision. My ability to see clearly and with purpose has continually been refined as I become more informed and enlightened over many years. I find the entire process of photography joyful, creative, and fulfilling. I am continuously present in the moment when I make images. Since I really create for myself first and judgment starts internally, the sharing of images and the ideas they may present is an extension of my process.
