I have been a photographer for over 40 years. I got my first film camera in the late 1950's but really started taking lots of pictures when I bought my first Polaroid camera. With my son Jeff, I learned some great techniques in a photography class we took together. Several of my photos won awards at the Fresno County Fair. My son Jeff, who was 10 years old at the time, won first place that year for an accidental photo!

I love taking pictures of just about anything that catches my eye. This is the first book of a themed series which includes Yosemite, Hawaii, Birds, Flowers, Sunsets, Insects and the Santa Barbara Zoo.
