Grew up in the Chicago area, and learned 35mm in the mid 80's. I enjoy visiting different cities and countries around the world in Asia, Europe and the U.S. for photographing landscape, nature and travel. I'm hoping to gain more experience with street and macro photography as well. The one thing that I'm hoping to become more experienced with is also naming the flowers and plants. I'll try my best to have the proper names, but as you know many may seem similar and I maybe slightly off with the proper names.
