  • About Me: My interest in photography was renewed several years ago when I retired. The new digital camera technology made the processing of images so much easier than the wet chemicals of the darkroom. My interest led me to take some courses at the local college, and to join some local art organizations. I am a graduated of the New York Institute of Photography.

    I am interested in exploring visual literacy. For most of human history mankind has communicated without written words through various artistic media. How does a photograph evoke a response to a picture of a child, an image of a tragedy, a snapshot of a loved one, or a beautiful flower? How can a written description of a sunset fore us, while a photograph of a sunset captivates our imagination? I tend to seek out objects or situations that I hope will elicit an emotional response. Then I explore the process of how that image elicits that response. I find it both emotionally and rationally rewarding when the entire process "works". Relatively new to photography, I can say with Michelangelo, "I am still learning."

    I have been fortunate to win several local awards. I also claimed two regional awards, as well as awards at the New York State fair. My work has also been accepted in a national show.

Hi Philip. It appears problems occurred when I deleted all my galleries at the same time. Joe has fixed it. So, I don't think you have to worry about any viruses. Thought you would like to know the follow-up.
