I love pictures - all kinds. Maybe it's because my dad was a professional photographer, and my uncle was a commercial artist. Pictures were all around me. I took my first photograph when I was four. I still have it. At eight, I built a pinhole camera and made pictures of anything that would be still for at least a full minute. My photographic interests are as varied as my interests in life, but I especially love scenics. My wife shares my love for exploring in pursuit of things to photograph - everything from close-ups of moths to old water mills.
