About me

I live and work in the State of Maine in the USA. I travel the state quite extensively for my work and I enjoy sharing the views from my office (car) window. Maine is larger than all the other New England states combined and it can take in excess of 8 hours to travel from one end of the State to the other.

My primary interest has been landscapes, but recently, I have been trying new things. This has made my transition from point and shoot cameras to DSLR very interesting. Photography is allowing me to nurture my artistic talents in ways that I never imagined possible. I also shoot RAW manual 95% of the time in order to obtain the best processing results.

Right now I am using my trusty Canon S5IS to take pictures of my world. Join the fotocommunity and start participating in the discussion. For those new to photography or taking the step from point and shoot to SLR / DSLR I highly recommend "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. Good Luck!

    Thanks for your comments on"fossil Leaves", I've had a look at your pictures I like the way some of them portray a lovely scence of the community spirit where you live, something sadly lacking here in England, you certainly have a good eye for a picture.
    All the best.

    I'm lucky, that now people from all over the world can see my photos,
    that's where I've taken the photos for.
    If you like Berlin at night, this one is for you :

    You are telling, that you travel through your state extensively,
    so I have another one for you.
    Did you ever see a sunrise like that ?

    RE: This reminds me of Prouts Neck, Maine.

    Hi, Ive never been to Prouts Neck but it can't be all that far from MA. I'll have to check it out.
    Thank you for commenting on my photo. I enjoy your photography and have added you to my buddy list so I won't miss any new posings you may have. Take care!

    thank you... yeah, it's a terrible place but it is moving. and... i don't know. sometimes you have to go to a scary place to know that that fearsome thing can be surmounted... anyway, thank you again.

    Hi Tony,
    This is a special welcome to fc from a fellow Mainer.
    You will love it here. I know I have learned allot in the very short time that I have been here.
    I just got a Kodak Easy Share DX6490 a few months ago. I’m still learning how to use it.
    My husband and I (with our 2 kids) are stationed in Maryland, but we used to live in Westbrook and his parents have a house on Sebago Lake. We defiantly live in a small word.
    Have fun with your new camera.

  • Deborah Hangartner 11/08/2004 21:20
