my story

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then let me share my novel with you.

Plane Images. Tucson International Airport, Concourse B Gallery. March 1 - May 31, 2016

Each person living or hanging out on the streets has a story to tell.  Photographing a face with character in a setting that captures the viewers interest is a special moment for a photographer.


Years ago I learned photography using film and processing in a darkroom .  I've spent the last several years playing "catch up" with digital.  Such fun it has been.  

Years ago I purchased a shoe box of 4x5 glass plates and acetate negatives resulting in a fascinating study of the world of an early 20th century amateur photographer, Maud Thompson Arnold.  I've now digitized the collection.





I love all things aviation.  Here I present images of airplanes with a slightly abstract perspective.

These kaleidoscopic reflections are from the surface of Cloud Gate, a stainless steel sculpture by Anish Kapoor, to create fractured abstract images.
