About me

I fell in love with photography in 68-69 when i was living in Berkeley. Purchased a 35mm at a pawn shop for $12.00 and never looked back.
I hope that when people look at my photos you will not just compliment my work, but give me "constructive criticism". It's how i learn, one thing about photography i have come to realize is, it never ends, there is no "perfect shot" and i can always have done it differently.
That is the beauty and the beast and my love for it and sharing the experience with like minded people is truly icing on the spaghetti !!

    Thanks for your comment Raul but, notice that in the foreground the Flower Stems are vertical suggesting that the background is on a slope!

    Raul...could you be the same person that was my jr. prom date...got a notion to look up old friends who impacted my junior years and you were one of them...maybe? If so, I'd love to hear where life has taken you. Louise Jewell, lower merion, ocean city, the park by merion station, etc.

    Thanks for your nice words Raul. It feels good to know somebody sits far looking at my picures and enjoy them.

    Hi Raul!
    I hope that you are well.
    Today I was visiting an animal farm in the Cotswold’s in England where I came across the following text about the Horse. I thought you would be interested in this.
    Best wishes,
    Nikolaus Benz

    The Horse
    Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy or beauty without vanity?
    Here where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined.
    He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
    There is nothing so powerful. Nothing less violent. There is nothing so quick. Nothing more patient.
    England’s past has been borne on his back.
    All our history is his industry,
    we are his heirs, he is our inheritance
