I began taking pictures in the 1980’s. In 1999 I switched from 35mm to digital and never looked back. I love street photography, reminders of past eras and abandoned America. Just as important is to document a “slice of ordinary life”; to capture the essence of what I see and show others; that an image taken in a fraction of a second tells a story. I also enjoy Macro Photography, showing the viewer what might be missed when not looking at very close range at a subject. Working with digital photography I have the best of two worlds by using my camera and my computer ability to manipulate images in Photoshop as may be done in the darkroom when using film.

I feel honored that my work was selected to receive a number of awards in shows I have entered. These images are displayed in the slideshow above.  The "Winners" gallery show what award from what show under the image.

Yi would have to hand it out to you that you indeed have a unique set of skills that I have rarely seen in people who loved taking pictures. I hope you would make use of all this and try to build a good carrier out of it which I could not.
