My interest in photography was piqued by the development of digital cameras and computer editing. I now use travel as an opportunity to capture things of visual interest. The specific cameras used for these photos have ranged from the Canon Powershot S2 IS to the still photography functions of Panasonic HDC-SD600 and HC-X900m video camcorders. The fact that I have used no SLR cameras is evidence of the hobbyist nature of my dabblings. I enjoy photography but not enough to expend significant sums of money pursuing it. Photography on a modest pocketbook. It should be noted that no "point and shoot" or phone cameras were utilized (nor harmed) during the taking of these photos. I only harm mid-level cameras. Editing of photos was handled in Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Rather than just documenting people or locations I prefer to look for intriguing shapes and the juxtaposition of elements. To this end, some of the more unusual pictures are of textures, shapes, and geometrical patterns plus the interesting play of light on these objects. This approach holds an inherent fascination for me and I'm always alert for combinations that catch my eye.

Here, in the form of a slideshow, are some examples of the many photographs I have taken over the last few years. Most of the photos shown here have been taken in western America: British Columbia, Washington, California, and Nevada.
