I have been an avid photographer since my teens.  Switched from film to digital photography in January 2010.  I love it that my laptop is my portable darkroom.  I can work on my photos just about anywhere.

I enjoy taking nature photos, but will photograph many other things… anything that catches my interest.  Many of my photos are taken within a 50 mile radius of my home in upstate New York.  This may sound rather dull and parochial, but there are a lot of interesting things around, even in your own home area.  All you have to do is look around and see what story it tells.  It  is not just big things, buildings, trees, rivers, and the like.  There are a lot of very interesting small objects out there:  insects, birds, trinkets and do-dads.  It’s amazing what I have found over the years.

I have photo essays that I want to put together, along with other photography-related topics.   This will be a perfect venue for that.
