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.
