Brief Summary
I don’t know if there is a word for the polar opposite of a narcissist, but if there is, that’s me. I’m so anti-narcissist I can barely string two words together to put into these dratted “about ME” sections. Ask me for my opinion on something and I’ll probably talk your leg off. Ask me about myself and I draw a blank.

But hey, I finally managed! Such as it is. *wink*

Anyway, even though I have sold a couple of photographs, I'm just an amateur photographer, and my favorite subjects are nature, landscapes, botanicals, and animals. Sometimes, very rarely, I photograph people and compose still lifes. One of my favorite things to attempt is to render difficult to recognize abstractions from ordinary subjects.

I also do food photography, but that is featured on my cooking blog.

My father is also a photographer, and I learned from him, back in the days of film photography. I learned to develop film and make prints when I was still a child, in my father's darkroom, and later did darkroom work and scanning electron microscope photography for the United States Geological Survey and the geology department at San Francisco State University. Now I do digital photography exclusively.

As my focus is nature, I do not employ Photoshop or Gimp. I use Lightroom to develop my RAW files, and ArcSoft PhotoImpression to crop and/or resize my images. I use TSR Watermark Image software to watermark my photos.
