I have been shooting pictures since 1965 when I got my first cheap roll film camera. Soon thereafter 8mm and Super 8 movie cameras enhanced my still camera eye.

I switched to digital in the year 2000. I shoot Canon EOS DSLRs (10D, 40D, 7D) and an occasional roll of color negative or slide film with older 35mm EOS cameras (10S and EOS 3). I shoot sports (bike racing), weddings, parties, landscapes, mountain biking, big trees, street shots, and wine country.

Software: Photoshop ver. 13 (CS6). Windows 7 x64.

Enjoy, have fun, leave good comments, and take great photos!
