Welcome to my galleries.
I have enjoyed photography all my life and with encouragement from friends, I have gotten into photography in a more creative manner.
I am pleased to say that some of my photos have been included in Artbook Tampa Bay 2011 and 2013, which is an ebook through iTunes of artists in the TampaBay area. Selection by judges from the art galleries and museums of Tampa.
I also had one of my photos selected for the cover of the Sarasota Senior Directory.
Please join me while I explore the photographic experiences of the natural and man-made wonders of this country and some others. As I have traveled and lived across this wonderful country, I experienced so much, that I have wanted to start documenting it through photography.
I have a wide range of interests as you can see by my galleries. I enjoy flowers, wildlife, landscapes, and finding that little corner you walked by and ignored. Hopefully my photos can show you the beauty around us.
A passion of mine has been the national parks. I have started my first steps at visiting and bringing some photographs to you of these grand places within our country. I started with Yosemite in California and Arcadia in Maine. Living in Florida I hope for the same sunny weather where ever I go, but Yosemite provided snow and Arcadia pouring rain. Both situations gave new dimensions to the photographs I have captured. In 2012, I have traveled to Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. More will be added in 2013 as plans get finalized.
Thank you for stopping by and please come back to see the additions to my national parks.
I have also started a new "cityscapes" at sunset. Starting first with Tampa and now Nashville. I will be adding more cities that are near my travels.
I am fortunate to know the organizer of the Manatee Horse Show, Sharon Barnhill, who asked me to be the photographer. I have covered the competitions in 2013 and will be producing a slideshow for the awards banquet. They are under the Competition section.
