​I was born somewhere I can’t remember, moved someplace else, where I grew to about 38 inches or so. Then the family unit moved once again.  At about 5 feet, I started observing life thru the lens of a camera. My surveillance continues to my present 5 feet 2 inches.

 Seeking a tropical temperature and blue skies, Pine Island became home. Curiosity leads me down many paths . The bright and colorful architecture of Matlacha inspired a collection of HDR photographs. Ding Darling, Cayo Costa, The Everglades, and Ten Thousand Islands all provide an assortment of splendid subject matter.

 As long as there is visual interest, I will try to seize it . When  I’ve captured a subject  suitably, it will be printed and shared with you, my lovely audience.

 Ultimately, I plan to continue this action until 4 feet 11 or so.​​
