Where I Am Now - Part 3 of 3

A few years ago, my kids were both off to college and starting their own lives, so it was just my wife and I. I decided to try out this new fangled thing called digital photography, and this brings us back to the beginning of this story. I started off with a Kodak Z740 just to get my feet wet and see if I liked digital. After I decided I do like shooting digital, it was time to upgrade. Nikon of course. I got a little bonus at work and bought a D80 with a couple of Tamron lenses. My son gave me a copy of PaintShop Pro Photo for Father's Day. Then about a month, maybe two, later, Nikon came out with the D90. I lusted after that camera for a couple of years, and thanks to another little bonus, I got one. This time I bought Nikkor lenses, 28 - 105mm and 70 - 300mm. BIG difference. I now also shoot much more color than I used to, but it's easy enough to convert to black and white digitally. And when I break out the film cameras, it's still B&W.

Recently got my first smart phone. One requirement I had for one was a decent camera. So, my daughter and son-in-law bought me a Samsung Galaxy Note II with an 8mp camera. Haven't used it for much yet, and nothing in here, but I will. I will. It's mostly a back -up for when I don't have one of my Nikons handy.

People often ask me if I show my work. I tell them "Yes, here at FAA. At you can see some of my favorites.

But also on my Flickr page at I can let more people see my work here than in an art show or gallery. But, I wouldn't turn down a chance to put my work in a show or gallery.

I also have a gallery at RedBubble,

I have a couple of photo books for sale. A Galaxy In A Knothole is at

and Stuff In The Sand is at

These all contain some of my early film up to my latest digital work.
