When I was about fourteen years old, my parents bought my sister and me each a Kodak Disc Camera. Remember those? Fifteen negatives were positioned in a circle around a center core, and the whole thing loaded into a flat, compact camera. And that camera went everywhere with me! From that day on, I was never without a camera, capturing Kodachrome images all the way through junior high and high school. Ask my friends. They know! I'd use my allowance to get the film developed and buy more film. Kids today will never know the anticipation of going to the Fotomat or drug store film counter to pick up your pictures and look at them for the first time. The reaction was either great joy or utter disappointment.

My parents saw that while my sister didn't care too much about photography, I was a shutterbug. So I got upgraded. My very first professional "real" camera was a Pentax K1000. I still have this camera to this day and will never part with it. I learned everything about photography on my Pentax. Over the years, I acquired many cameras—digital and film.

It is true. A picture is worth a thousand words. I am sentimental to the nth degree and to a fault. When something or someone is important to me, I want pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. 

There's no way on earth I could possibly share all of my photos, but I will share some that I think you'll enjoy.
