Hello, and welcome.
For me the act of deciding to blog was a strange one; there’s an element of ego involved that’s a little tough to overcome. Why would anyone care to read what I write? Ultimately I decided it doesn’t matter, and that I may gain something merely from the act of committing thoughts.
I’ve been a keen amateur photographer, off and on, for over 30 years. I started with photography classes in school as an alternative to other forms of art at which I was exceptionally unexceptional. Over the years I’ve had a small darkroom, almost always mono but occasionally some Ciba printing, in most of the places I’ve lived. There have been gaps of a few years here and there, but it’s always something to which I have returned.
My day job has nothing at all to do with photography, but vacations are almost always centered around travel which provides interesting opportunities for picture taking.
