My first media of choice was the camera. My mother was always taking pictures of my sister and me as children, she had a wall full of black and white photos she had taken of us and developed herself when we were kids. Mom's camera was always around, no matter where we went. I learned to take photos as a child, and when I was in high school, I became a photographer, and later the photo editor, of my high school newspaper. I would spend every free minute, study halls, class time, before or after school, in the darkroom. It was fascinating to me, and the more I learned, the better I became. Nowadays, I don't have much time to do photography, but I still appreciate the art, and try to take pictures whenever I can. I still believe it is very difficult to be good at, even with advances in digital technology. The following pages contain just a few of the thousands of photos I have taken. These are some of my favorites.
