First of all I'd like to welcome you to my page, and if you took the time to glance at my gallery, I'd like to say thank you. Also; If you favored one of my shots I'd like to say this up front; THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I do appreciate it. I may not individually respond to being favored, but I do respond to every comment.|
I got my first camera in 1958 on my 10th birthday and I've been hooked ever since.
In 1965 I got my first 35mm, a Nikkormat FT
In 1972 I got my degree in Graphic Design/Photography.
My photography interests vary, but I favor three subjects; Surfing allen59.deviantart.com/gallery… , Classic Cars allen59.deviantart.com/gallery… and Mother Nature allen59.deviantart.com/gallery….
The majority of my photographs are taken in Central and Northern California, in particular; Santa Cruz and the coast both north and south; Monterey/Carmel area; The San Francisco Bay Area and the mountain regions that surround it; the Lake Tahoe region; Yosemite National Park.
|It's weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don't even amount to a couple of hours. ~James Lalropui Keivom|
While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see. ~Dorothea Lange
Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts. ~Minor White
A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into. ~Ansel Adams
