In celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary, my wife, Jeri, and I took our entire immediate family on an adventurous vacation on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. The scenery was awesome and the Great Alaska experience was wonderful.
As a youngster I was keenly interested in art and photography as well as science. However, my desire to become a physician led me to concentrate on science and limit the time I could spend on artistic endeavors. Science and medicine also demanded that I look at matters in an analytical, dispassionate manner. Retirement has had a wonderful liberating effect on me and my perspective of all sorts of beautiful things and people. My wife and I love to travel and I love to try to capture some of the wonderful emotions we experience as we visit places new to us. You will notice that my interests are eclectic ranging from a macro close up of the Heart of a Blue Orchid to the beautiful landscape of the Jemez Lake in Valles Grande, New Mexico. I use several Canon cameras and a variety of Canon and Sigma lenses. In the candid photo of me above, I am photographing grizzly bears in southwestern Alaska using a Canon EOS 6D camera with a Sigma 50-500 mm lens. I always shoot in RAW format
