hi folks, just found this site and thought i'd pop in and see what it's all about. i'm from the Pacific Northwest, too darn close to Seattle (i HATE cities!), but i enjoy the photo ops this area has to offer when it's not raining. i've been dabbling in photography on and off since the mid-80's, finally took the digital plunge in 2004, and now shoot with 5D and 40D Canon dSLRs. i do mostly wildlife and landscapes, with an occasional shot or two of man-made artifacts like lighthouses or urban structures. you can see the kinds of things i do on my website. i look forward to getting acquainted and sharing my corner of the world with everyone here.
