Not sure what started me, most likely while stationed in South East Asia in the early 70's and the prices we paid for good 35mm SLRs. My best images are skies and colors. Wildflowers are my favorite subjects. I currently use a Minolta, Kodak and Creative digicams. 20 years of computer systems consulting became worthwhile in the mid 90's with the advent of inexpensive digital cams. While Kodak and Fuji may disagree I'm personally very happy to evaluate my pics and not have to pay processing fees to do so.
