Sentimental at heart, I value memories especially our shared memories. If you want to create lasting memories or make a great first impression where you and not the photographer is the center attention, we should talk.

"Wow," Preston was really impressed with the lion exhibit at the Philadelpia Zoo this week!

This was my first visit to the lions at the new cat exhibit - "Big Cat Falls" that gave me a reasonably good shoot of a lion. Persistence pays off...

Otters are very active and very fast... Technically this was a difficult shot to capture. Shooting through dirty plexiglass, I was using a Nikon D200 with 18-200 zoom with vibration reduction - the ISO was bumped up to 1600 to get a reasonably fast shutter speed of 1/500 -- shooting 5 frames / second.

Looked like there was some "necking" going on with the giant tortoises...

Impala frolicking in the fountain... at the Impala Pavilion of the Philadelphia Zoo. With the bright sun and full foilage, I shot a few infrared images with a D100 converted for infrared photography.

Spring wild flowers... With bad "hay fever" it is a real challenge taking these shots... runny nose... sneezing...

Front door of an old home, slow receeding into the ground...

This old house... backdoor of an old, old home.

I love the greens of summer...

This evening Francie and Ali took some time out to sit together and throw pebbles into the creek as the sun set on a beautiful spring day - warm and sunny with a light breeze.

Eli came for dinner. After we cleaned the food out of his hair and wiped his face, we were able to hold him down for this shot (it was diaper time). He is so active it is hard to get a nice tight shot in focus...
