Your Bio

Hello!
Welcome to my galleries.... Best album imho is "People in Place".. Slideshow.

Usually you find me behind the camera, but sometimes it's fun getting my picture taken too!

Digital Photography is a consuming passion and my most fun, as you will see when you browse thru the galleries.
Enjoy, and please please comment.....



I am or have been a member of WebAperture, Philly PAC, The Photography Network, afzcc - Philly Zoo Camera Club, Flickr, PSOP- Photographic Society of Philadelphia, PSA - Photographic Society of America, NAPP, National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals, and The African Violet Society - where I often post pictures from my violet collection.
