I always tell people I'm a family man and I love my family and kids(all 4 of them)very much. It's the simple things that make me happy, and seeing them happy makes me happy!
I received my first camera, a polaroid type, from my older sister as a gift because I was always playing with her (and maybe she knew I needed my own) camera as a young child growing up in Europe as an American Army Brat, over thirty years ago. I very soon learned that not just my photos but anyone's good photos can change the way a person views their own way of life as it my be.
It may have been a long time ago, but still to this day, as to the last time I took a photograph just recently. I don't always try to capture a moment in time, but a memory that captures a heartfelt emotion that lasts for ever.
