The Gallery


I've been taking photos for a long time. I bought a used Asahi Pentax SpotMatic single lens reflex 33mm camera back when I was in high school (built-in light meter, but no auto-focus like today), and did some sports photography and still-life shots. I tried black and white and developing/printing my own photos in a darkroom, but I really preferred color, and color slides in particular. I shot mostly EktaChrome and KodaChrome, ASA 100 or 200, but would push the film up to 1600 for special situations. Back then photo developing places knew what pushing meant and knew how to alter the development process to maximize the quality.

When I met Lynn, I found out that she has exactly the same camera, only under the Honeywell label. We fit together well!

The years passed and I found I was picking up the camera less and less. I would use it for family events and such, but with a growing family and associated responsibilities, I found I really didn't have the time or the finances to support a serious photography habit ...errr... hobby!

Then along came digital...

I had use of an Olympus Camedia pocket digital camera for a number of years, but in the planning of our trip to Ireland in 2004 I realized that I needed a new camera if I was going to take seriously decent photos during the trip, and I was also getting re-interested in serious photography in general. So I bought a Canon Digital Rebel SLR a few months before the trip (to give me a few months to learn how to use it properly).

On the ensuing pages are some of my favorite photos from 35 years of snapping the shutter. They're arranged in categories to better group them, and I'll probably change some in and out at times, just like a real gallery. I hope you enjoy them.
