 I enjoy finding photo shots that interest me and, I hope, others.  I started in photography while in high school when I took a photography class to include "how to develop B & W film".  My first 35SLR camera was a Canon ftb, which I bought when I was in the Air Force.  I bought a lot of lens with that camera and took a lot of pictures while in Europe. Aircraft were another subject matter that caught my interest while in uniform.  Stationed just across from the Frankfurt airport, I had the opportunity to take many.  (My photo stories were first displayed on SpringsPhotos.com and then, later, on Newsblab.com)


Digital cameras have made a huge impact on the world of photography.  I had a few since their creation, and I'm sure I'll buy a few more in my lifetime.


The camera I used for my photo stories, prior to 12 Sep 2001,  was an Olympus D-600L and that's when I upgraded to an Olympus E10, which is the camera I use for my current stories.
