About the Book
This book represents a culmination of my effort to present a comprehensive catalog of my best photographs, grouped and organized by subjects that include winter landscape, waterfalls, avian, wildlife, aviation, Civil War battlefields, Dayton, Cincinnati, flowers, autumn landscape, sports/action and more. Also featured are some of my favorite black and white as well as handcolored images. I try to let the pictures speak for themselves, and they speak of a message that echoes the spirit that guides my artistic vision.
