I have been hooked on black and white images since I first had access to a darkroom many years ago. Now I am fully converted to digital. Recently, I have used focus stacking and Silver Efex Pro to produce images of flowers that reveal their structure and texture. Another project was to have my superseded CanonEOS 10 modified to take near infra-red photos. My submission includes photos exemplifying these approaches. I am also interested in architecture and have enjoyed talking many pictures in New York over many years. The final image is my take on a memorial to 9/11.
