I am a photographer based in College Park, Maryland. I am a retired optical scientist and have been an amateur photographer for many years, working with black and white and color film, and moving to the digital world in the 1990s. I am especially interested in landscape and cityscape photography and the color, form, and textures that can be captured in those settings. I love the southwest and the colorful sandstone layers that have been exposed by erosion. I strive to take advantage of all the power of modern sensor technology and image processing software to create a compelling connection with my subjects.
