Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but waiting to see if Sony comes out with a ‘A9’ before I upgrade) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!

In the Spotlight: Dae Woong Jeon

My daughter spent a year in Busan South Korea teaching English to Korean children at a private school. I was able to visit her twice during her stay in Busan.  The first time visiting, we went to Beomesa, a Buddhist temple in the northwest of Busan in the mountains. Unfortunately, we didn’t do our research (so we didn’t realize that …

Ta Prohm

This article is part 1 of 4 in the series Angkor Wat

This article is part 1 of 4 in the series Angkor WatPerhaps one of the most photogenic of the Angkor Wat temples, Ta Prohm was left pretty much as it was found intertwined with the jungle. Even though it has been cleared a little to allow for people to visit the various sections of the temple complex, it still has …

In the Spotlight: Cathedral Rock Evening

I have been to Sedona a number of times the past two years, and have always tried to take some wonderful photographs.  It is harder than it sounds. First, there is a lot of development and home near many of the real beautiful spots that inhibit some great shots.   Secondly, there are a lot of folks out and about …
