I have been photographing in black-and-white (B&W) and color for 50 years. I started with a Minolta SLR camera and am currently experimenting with a camera phone. I try to create an abstract image from realistic subject matter, while capturing the light and essence of the subject which I am photographing.

While I have had careers in transortation planning and founding an outdoor dinosaur museum in Colorado, I am now enjoying focusing my energies on photography.
