It's a long and difficult road to old age. I’ve made few friends along the way, and even fewer brothers. And of those few, I’ve lost a couple of the closest and dearest to me. But it's been a great ride.
I have the obligatory geezer glide, and a rigid, kick only, open primary, jockey shiftin 1968 shovelhead just to remind myself that I ain’t dead yet.
I'm a son, brother, father, husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather. But probably more than anything else I'm a biker that takes photographs. I got my 1st camera from my father, while still in high school. At 17 the USAF was my next step towards where I am today. Buying cameras overseas was pretty cheap in the 70's; as well as great stereo equipment. That's probably why my wife is always telling me I'm talking too loud, and why I’m always saying, what?... Shooting photos keep me close to the environment I know and love.
I still shoot A LOT of film, I love black and white film. And I have a number of film cameras; more so than digital cameras. My D700 is my main color instrument. It's old, but it is a tank and is great in low light. Last year I picked up a D500 because it is a great camera.
I have been very fortunate traveling this road of life; most fortunate to still be traveling this road.
