I started in photography almost forty years ago when I bought my first SLR, a second hand Konica that came with three lenses.  I read books, talked to friends, and learned bits and pieces wherever I could.  Over the years I have photographed people and landscapes in places like Brazil, Bolivia, Honduras, England, Ireland, Morocco and Spain.   

But my photography didn't start to take off until two things happened.  First, I finally embraced digital photography after many years of resistance.  Second, I retired in the summer of 2015 which gave me much more time to devote to photography.  I've been enjoying entering shows around Rhode Island, and I continue to learn whenever and wherever I can. 

In August of 2015 I went to South Africa where I was able to go on Safari and photograph lions, elephants and other "big five" animals.  And I had a lot of fun with street photography in Johannesburg, Soweto and Durban.
