I started taking photos with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye in 1952. My first serious camera was a Nikon F1 obtained in 1964. Cameras have come and gone, but my interest in the medium continues. I’ve been a lifelong resident of Virginia (Augusta County) and in education for 36 years. Now retired, my wife Paula and I enjoy exploring the back roads of the Valley, always looking for new photo opportunities.
