Thank you for all your wonderful entries, there sure is a lot of creative buildings and bridges out there.NE - Thomas, a very striking building, liked the interior shots as well.#5 Thymewarp, like all the curves, would love to see the overhanging objects up close, just can't tell what they are but are very interesting.…See More

Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
I was born in sunny California but have lived in many places; New Jersey, Germany, Canada and Mississippi. Currently I am residing in Southern California.

I know the importance that photographs play in our lives. One simple photograph can say more than a hundred words could ever begin to describe. One photograph can bring you to tears filled with either joy or sorrow. They are not just objects of art but also tell a story. Photographs are ageless, even if they fade or become tattered and torn, they are still cherished from generation to generation keeping memories alive.

I've always been fascinated with photography as far back as I can remember. My father was a photography enthusiast and we traveled many places all over the globe with him as he captured life's moments as they happened. When I was old enough my father handed down his 35mm camera to me. I don't recall the brand but I do recall it had screw mounted lenses, nothing automatic and it weighed a ton . . . I was hooked!

I learned out the hard way to never leave home without your camera. January 17, 1994, I was on the freeway early morning heading to Van Nuys and was about 10 minutes from Northridge when the earthquake struck. I saw and witnessed things that no one else did; blue sparks in the sky as transformers snapped, overturned vehicles, buckled roads, spot fires, water main breaks, and citizens taking action. That moment changed me and I now never leave the house, even if I am only going to the market, without my camera. As you can see in one of my crude albums titled "Firestorm", these are not award winning pictures but do show the dangers faced by every day people traveling and getting cornered by a wild fire.

Photography to me is like a photo essay of places I have been, things I have seen all delivered with my special twist, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
My Photography Equipment:
A Nikon D5200 and a small collection of Panasonic Lumix series digital cameras.

Photos Revisited

Posted on August 4, 2011 at 1:51pm 3 Comments

Digital photography exploded when it emerged on the scene. No longer did you have to anticipate whether or not your captured memories turned out okay. No longer did you have to take two, three or more shots of the same subject in hopes that at least one would turn out.  No longer did you have to wait days for your pictures to be developed, or worse yet, pay double or sometimes even triple to have them the same day. Now you could see immediately what you shot and retake if…

Thanks for the invite, you are my first friend. I can't get on this site very often but I try. I really enjoy looking at the thousands of photos, the styles and interests of other photographers. Thanks again and look forward to seeing your work in the future.

Thank you for spending some time today messaging me. The information you provided was very good. I see looking at your profile we don't live but an hour drive away and maybe if you are up to it we could get together some weekend or after work to go shooting, please let me know.

Thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot to me. I will try to come out of my shell and achieve more. You're very inspirational and if you don't mind me saying, your photo is quite lovely too. Maybe we could chat some time.

Hi Deborah, many thanks for my #1. It really means a lot for me. I'm sure you had a tough time in deciding who's going to wear the crown. If I read the rules correctly, I'm suppose to host the next daily challenge. Unfortunately I'm going to be away for a week and won't be able to do it. I'm so sorry!! Is it possible to ask Shirley to take my place? I've already sent her a message on her wall.

Many thanks again

André
