I love to take photos. I try to capture the essence of a place. I have a book on Mount St Helens published by Arcadia Publishing. My first book of photos has been self-published on blurb. www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1226387

It is a compilation of photos showing the evolution of the landscape around Mount St Helens from prior to the 1980 eruption thru 2009. 150 photos on 80 pages.

My book and photos were a centerpiece for a piece on Discovery News: news.discovery.com/earth/st-helens-anniversary.html

My favorite place? Mt St Helens, of course! My camera nearly always goes along with me. Many of my pictures are stitched scenic panoramas since even a wideangle lens does not capture everything I want to record. Not all of my photos are going to be grade A number 1 type photos. Many will be copies of old "family" photos. Plan on seeing a wide mix of photos here though. Comments are always appreciated.

The most handsome fella I've seen on a bike. Also with the cutest cat in the world. Best combination ever.

David A gets a photo of me racing bikes every week - and that's awesome! Thank you so much for being out there with your camera. I have somewhere that I can point disbelieving family & friends to.

There's nothing postmodern about a bicycle. There just isn't.
