Two stories:

I have already established in previous posts that most of my early photographic adventures involved being out in snowy and icy conditions.  I enjoyed the crispness to the air and the fact that, most of the time, there were not many people out and about.  The pristine quality of the scenery was enticing.

No photos and not much text-just a request to assist the people of Haiti with a donation, if possible.

Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) is one option.

Take care.

I have always been interested in photography.

As a child, I would pull my parents’ copies of Life and National Geographic from the magazine rack and become engrossed the pictures.  On occasion, I would even read the articles.

As I grew older and began to hike, backpack, and climb throughout the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, I wanted reminders of the experiences and so photography became a necessity.  I did some research and purchased a state-of-the-art 35 mm film camera with the requisite 50 mm lens (this was 30 years ago.)   Shortly thereafter, I added 28 mm and 135 mm lenses and a small flash.  I was ready for the next adventure.

It is 2010 and I am starting this blog for the new year.

I have been a  photographer for over 20 years and have recently found that my knowledge of sociology and psychology have become driving forces in my imagery.  There are a few projects on which I have been working and will be posting shortly, so please check back.
