A Rose is a Rose ...
Let it snow. Let it snow.

Whew! It's hot.
Winter at the Lake I
I started in film photography about 40 years ago, after taking a couple of
courses in acrylic painting at a local community college. The courses were in
the winter and so we had to take pictures of our subjects so as to be able to
paint indoors. I quickly fell in love with the camera and took some courses in
basic photography and joined a local photography club. With monthly club
contests I became very competitive, winning a number of monthly contests.
When digital cameras came out with a better resolution I joined the “digital
age” without hesitation. In the spring of 2004 I held my first (and only) one
man show at Bistro 309, which has since changed its name. I displayed 30
framed pieces, with a small number of “digital Art” pieces and was pleasantly
surprised with the reaction to the “digital art” pieces. I now do a few more art
pieces, but my real interest is in pure photography.
I presently lead The Lake of the Woods Camera Club, teaching basic
photography and helping our members learn to use Photoshop Elements 4.0 a
software program to enhance photos as well as create “digital art”.
EXHIBITS: Currently I have framed pieces hanging at the following locations:
Wild Bird Center Lee’s Hill Restaurant Caroline Café Lake of the Woods
Clubhouse Lake of the Woods Administration Building
AWARDS: Several first second and third place awards at the annual
Fredericksburg Photography contest.
STATEMENT: I believe that photographers and artists have an obligation to not
only capture the beauty that God surrounds us with but to share those images
with those too busy to smell the roses.
