I am an avid photography buff. I have been fortunate to be able to travel to all seven continents and have taken thousands of pictures in many beautiful places. It's difficult to name any favorite place, or to even name 10 favorite places.
I photograph large landscape scenes and print them on canvas and aluminum because of the vivid colors and high resolution that I can achieve.
I think Antarctica was especially beautiful and provided unexpected sights and unusual beauty. Jerusalem and the Holy land are very special places so filled with history and inspiration. China is vast and mysterious, difficult to fully comprehend. As Churchill said, “Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.”
The desert Southwest where I now spend my winters has been a wonderful experience. Born in the Midwest and living east of the Mississippi, I previously thought of desert as "just miles of sand and cactus." Not so!
New Hampshire, where I have lived for almost 30 years and where I spend my summers, is a very special place because of the history and its rural nature. You can't just paint or photograph the yellows and reds of the October landscape. Massachusetts, Vermont, NH, and Maine - you have to see it and feel it and smell it. And Boston - what a great city!
The American West has wonderful national parks and places where there is unusual beauty to be seen and photographed. Wandering around Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, California, and the Pacific coast is a joyful experience. Who could imagine the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
