I am a retired Biology professor from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. My interest in photography dates to my teen age years when my father gave me a small Zeiss-Icon camera that had only a single, built-in, fixed lens. I still have some of the pictures I took with that camera. Unfortunately the camera got lost during our many moves from one country to another. But the enthusiasm for photography never waned. Later, in graduate school, we had to provide all of our illustrations for publications and the thesis. This is when I learned darkroom techniques. The switch from the wet darkroom to digital was easy, fun, and challenging but never regretted.
