First of all I'd like to welcome you to my page, and if you took the time to glance at my gallery, I'd like to say thank you. Also; If you favored one of my shots I'd like to say this up front; THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I do appreciate it.
I may not individually respond to being favored, but I do respond to every comment.
I got my first camera in 1958 on my 10th birthday and I've been hooked ever since.
In 1965 I got my first 35mm, a Nikkormat FT
In 1972 I got my degree in Graphic Design/Photography.
My photography interests vary, but I favor three subjects; Surfing allen59.deviantart.com/gallery… , Classic Cars allen59.deviantart.com/gallery… and Mother Nature allen59.deviantart.com/gallery….
