I’m a retired environmental engineer who spent 35+ years in consulting, industry and state government. I got interested in photography in graduate school as part of my masters thesis work. I owned a 35mm film camera that I used for microphotography, landscape, auto racing, and general travel photography. I used to develop black & white and slide film. As our kids came along, I got away from still photography for home movies (film and video). I migrated back to still photography in the late 90’s with an early Fujifilm digital camera. Once I retired in 2008, I bought myself a Nikon DSLR (D80). I upgraded to a D7000 a couple of years ago after my D80 was stolen. My go-to lens is an 18-200mm Nikkor zoom. I also have Tamron 10-24mm and 200-400mm zooms. Most of my photography revolves around travel in an motorhome. Since 2008, my wife and I have traveled over 100,000 miles around the US visiting all of the lower 48, Alaska, and 4 of the Eastern Provinces of Canada.
