I have been practicing photography most of my life either in front of or behind the lens. I learned the basics from two of the best teachers I could have ever encountered, my beloved father, and brother. The smell of developer was/is in my nostrils and the excitement of a completed image still motivating me to continue to learn and produce beautiful images, and carry on the tradition of my family.
My Father was a re-known artist and photographer in Denver, member and co-founder of the Denver Artist Guild, and serious award winner and devoted instructor of various art forms, oil, watercolor pastel painting with photography being his mainstay and true love.
My brother was an award winning Freelance Photographer, accomplished Technical Writer, and computer expert (geek). He was among the first computer programmers during the 70's and 80's, (owner of the first personally owned room size WANG PC computer in the late 70's). Having worked closely as a technical writer and test pilot for both Paul Allen and Bill Gates while they developed the first personal computers, he was instrumental in the development of personal computers being available for public purchase. He tested and approved software and hardware products being contemplated for use for both Apple and Microsoft companies in the "Battle of the PC". He single handedly approved the first operational programs for Microsoft (Word) and Apple Developmental projects.
He was author of operational books and procedures for both companies. Ernest E. Mau is in 'Who's Who in Computers" and author of many programming books still used for development today.

I Love and I miss you both terribly! Thank you for instilling this interest in me. I wish you could be here to see what has developed in technology since your foresight. I believe you are still programming today's technology from a better place and bringing some of those far fetched ideas to our hands. One of them being Digital Imagery. ~ Thank you
I humbly follow in the footsteps that my father and brother created through out their lives. I proudly carry on the photography and personal values that both have instilled in me in my early years.

I sent a friend request because that is the only way I could send a private message and then clicked the wrong button so I didn't get to include the message. This leaves me with doing it here. I like your work but my question is how did you embed the music player into the page? I have wanted to do this but can't seem to find any info on how it is done.
Thanks Lea. I like the orchid pics. Yours were probably taken in Hawaii. Hope to go there someday. I have many orchids in my portfolio but they were taken at Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, PA. If you like flowers from around the world it is the place to visit. Check out their website. Look for flower pics in my site, coming soon.
