My first camera was a Kodak Brownie that I purchased with a $5.00 bill that I found at the age of 12. My first black and white photos were of the Steinhardt Museum in San Francisco and later the Kon Tiki, Thor Heyerdahl’s sailing raft. Needless to say I was hooked.
Since then I've travelled throughout Asia in and out of the military, using 35 mm cameras by Canon, Minolta and Nikon. Did some 4 X 5 macro photos for a friend's magazine and shot lots of weddings, B Day parties, friend’s kids / animals and many other joyous occasions. I'm now retired some 57 years after buying that $5.00 dollar camera that started me off on this exciting love affair with the images that a person and a camera can produce.
There are images displayed here that were taken during my time in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and numerous locations in Asia. Since I've lived the last 35 plus years in Hawaii you'll see lots of the beautiful scenery, plants, animals and beautiful people. I'll be adding a greater variety of images over the remaining year. Please look at what I have and feel free to give me your thoughts and opinions. Aloha and Mahalo.
