I love taking (and painting) pictures. It's like writing poetry. I have always done it. I aim the camera and when it feels right, I snap the shutter. I always make myself available to beauty.

Western United States, landscapes with emphasis on tourist destinations in California and Colorado including national parks, national monuments, and public lands. Used to live in Los Angeles. Now reside in Western Colorado. 4-season views of rural subjects, red rock desert, and alpine scenery are readily available. I also write educational materials and am aware of the needs of such publications, especially elementary phonics and math.
