My Bio

This is a photo of me, probably shot around 1980 by my brother - which would explain the home darkroom print. Anyway, the truck, which was named "The Mighty Quinn" because it was great and white, is a 1954 Chevrolet with a Grumman aluminum body. I had it for 17 years, and sold it in 1991.


More recently, as evidenced by the mermaids, I have been bitten by an artistic bug. This is an entirely new direction for me. It is my first foray into creating any kind of art other than photography. Interestingly, I have found that my engineering skills have prepared me quite well for this, Now I have to practice brushstrokes and color mixing. Good news is I've been involved with the Cape Cod Museum of Art lately, where there's a wealth of knowledge and people willing to point me in the right direction.

Beauty

0 min read
Beauty exists everywhere, all around us, all the time and in every thing. Beauty is like a key, that unlocks a feeling. As a photographer, the goal is to see it, to capture it, to preserve it, and hopefully convey it to others. (This was inspired by stefangrosjean's entry: How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?)

New York Renaissance Faire 2012

0 min read
is Over! As many of you are already aware, I was there Saturday (second to the last day), so effectively I opened and Closed Ren Faire. I took 440 pictures on Saturday, certainly the most pictures I've ever taken in one day. I really enjoy taking pictures of people and I don't often get a chance to do so. A few of them came out pretty well. I've posted some and hope to post more as time and inspiration permit. :thumb328875160: :thumb328690439: :thumb329810684: :thumb343079408: :thumb328690182: :thumb329812058: :thumb329815953: :thumb328689557: :thumb328878273: :thumb328880418: All of my Ren Faire photos can be found here: http://themigh

Happy Birthday!!
Many thanks Frank, for adding "Daffy Dodge" to your favourites :salute:
Is your name in reference to the song from the 60's?
"Come on without, come on with in... You've not seen nothing till you see the Mighty Quinn!"
Yes - though indirectly. I had a 1954 aluminum step can that one of my musician friends named "The Mighty Quinn" because it was great and white!
Happy birthday Mr. Frank! have a good one :)
