Lately, I've been getting more interested again in photography, once my primary interest in life. A few years ago I sold and gave away all my antique cameras and 16mm filmmaking equipment, but kept my old Nikon and lenses. With my new capability to manipulate photos in my computer, my old world has re-opened to me. I use both film and digital cameras, and print everything from my computer.

Someone gave me an old version of Photoshop not long ago. I'd been using Paint Shop Pro and a couple of other software programs, but Photoshop seemed to open up a lot more possibilities for me. I purchased Version 6.0 and took a couple of courses in it at the local Community College, and am really turned on! 

I'll add things to this section of my site as they come to me. Right now, there are only a few more pages. Let me know what you think.
