Photography isn't just a hobby; it's my attempt at sanity! It's a diversion in a life with much responsibility, and also a way of looking at the world. Over the years, thinking photographically has made me more observant.

So, I keep a camera with me, wherever I go. If I'm dressed up, I'll probably have a point-and-shoot in the pocket of my sport coat. You know, the camera I keep in the office. When I'm driving, walking around town, or exploring a park, I take my DSLR, usually with a telephoto lens.

I shoot what I'm in the mood to shoot. Macros, nature, family, or things that make me think. My camera and I like to explore cemeteries. And, I use as little editing as possible. Not that I'm against Photoshopping; I just keep things simple for myself.

Photography also helps me with sanity because it introduces me to folks on Deviant Art and Flickr. Since I began posting photos, I've encountered many people, and enjoyed friendships that I value.

Thanks for stopping by. Some of the items in my gallery are actually attempts at quality photography. Others simply chronicle my life. Either way, I'm glad our paths have crossed.
