I've been into photography including black and white darkroom work since 1948 while in the military assigned to an air base in Germany. My real job both military (20 years) and Weather Bureau, (17 plus years) has been that of a weather observer or meteorological technician. In later years, I have worked as an "archaeological technician," doing photography, mapping and illustrating books and reports with pen and ink drawings. Having a wife who is a professional archaeologist helps me get the work. Except for an occasional bit of B&W historic documentation with medium format for one company or another, I now just photograph for fun. I enjoy, writing poetry (poorly), playing the ukelele (really badly) and throwing spears as a target sport (also poorly). I also pass a good deal of time on photo.net - some think too much!
