Welcome to my galleries.
I remember back to my kindergarten days: sitting around the table with my classmates producing beautiful pieces of Crayola art. We had a lot of fun back then and today I get the same enjoyment from putting pencil to paper or brush to canvas.
As I grew older I discovered the wonderful world of photography. I used to play with the old bellowed box camera my parents owned and marveled at what was captured in black and white. Then came my mother’s polaroid camera; what an awesome piece of plastic! Patient as I was, it always took way to long to process the photo image, but I was hooked. You can imagine my excitement when photography finally went digital!
My dream is to one day own a beautiful DSLR Canon with a good telephoto lens so I can capture wildlife the way I want to. Until then I will play with my little Canon digital pocket camera and my very old workhorse; my 35mm Canon AE-1.
I hope you enjoy browsing as much as I enjoy creating.

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.
After carefully planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van.
However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such
An obvious error, he replied:
“Monsieur, that’s the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to Buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”
