I've been taking pictures since the late 1950's. And I still have all those images.


My photo blog, All I've Seen, has many more images, and I'm feeding them a few at a time to Flickr.


I grew up in New York City and the suburbs of Long Island, lived in Greenwich Village from 1964-68, and moved to Berkeley California in 1968. That's why there are many pictures from there.


I lived in London in 1973 and again 1977-78. And my first visit to Ireland and London was in 1966. That's why there are a lot of London images. There have been many trips to Europe since then.


All my photos were taken with Nikon cameras: Nikkormat, Nikon F, Nikon FM, Nikon F2, Nikon N80, Nikon E3100, Nikon D80.


I am now (12/2010) using a Nikon D7000. You'll also see images taken with an Apple iPhone 5 and Xr.


The earliest film images were shot on Anscochrome (post-war GAF), then Kodachrome and Ektachrome, and finally Fujichrome. The slides were scanned using a Nikon LS-40 ED scanner. Post processing is with Lightroom 3, Lightroom 4, or Photoshop CS5, and CS6.


I see in color and find black and white images depressing. But I keep trying.


Some of my images have found their way to CD covers (Cold Blue Music, New World Records Mode Records), book covers, and bio pics (Abbie Hoffman, Phil Ochs).

Recently, Berkeleyside, an online local news website, did a feature on my early Berkeley photos, here.


And then there's the place where everything else is revealed: All I Know
