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

Beauty

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

New York Renaissance Faire 2012

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

Is your name in reference to the song from the 60's?

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!
