As a kid I was fascinated with photographs. Look, Life magazine. National Geographic.
That well-captured interplay of light and shadow...the notion of people, places and moments - all suspended in time.
My first 'real' camera was a Minolta Srt101. I was seduced.
I learned how to develop film, and I still recall the smell of the developer...my eyes adjusting to the red filter light...and the magic and delight of watching images begin to emerge.
Life, family and a career intervened, and then...there was digital.
At this point in my life, photography is the creative medium that allows me to share personal moments and adventures. In some sense, I feel it conveys who I am, and soothes the darker moments.
If you see an image that resonates with you, I greatly appreciate your comments!
