Thoughts about myself and this site:
"I have been excited by photography ever since my father brought me as a child into his home darkroom to watch an image appear in a tray of developer. Years later, I grew to love photography while in the Army in the mid-1960s. I was based in the foothills of the German Alps at a small post that had a good photo lab. A friend of mine on the base, future professional photographer Jim Bengston, encouraged me to purchase a 35 mm SLR. About the same time, I discovered marvelous photos in books by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Elliot Erwitt. On my return to the United States, the Associated Press hired me as a writer. During my years with the wire service, my obsession with and passion for photography only grew."
"My delight in the still photograph and good stories remains as strong as ever. I expect this Web site to become a fine place to display my photographs and a home for discussion and interaction with others about photography and the telling of stories."
