Photography has been a hobby of mine since high school, where I did my first film development and printing in the school dark room.


After college, I took a couple of local classes while teaching at a local elementary school for 27 years. I live in Milford, Ohio, near Cincinnati.  I retired from teaching in 2015, and since then, I’ve been learning how to use digital cameras, first a Canon 70D, and now a Fujifilm X-T2 mirrorless.


I’ve captured a variety of subjects, such as landscapes; animals and flowers; reflections/refractions; and cityscapes (day and night).


Recently, I’ve been more focused on abstract and minimalism photography, and trying to develop my artistic “eye, mind, heart” in seeing my subject in a different way.


I'm trying to capture what I see in my mind and through my eyes using my camera to capture those images.   This includes deciding to shoot in color or in black and white.  Since I shoot in RAW, I use the Affinity Photo program in post-processing to fine-tune exposure, color, texture, and clarity. 


Sometimes I will do more than fine-tune: I may change or saturate colors; change to color or black and white; soften up or harden the look within a frame; and/or change the contrast.  I see this as a way to continue the process of creating what I see in my mind and through my eyes and deciding to turn it into fine art.


I'm also learning how to grow as a writer of poetry.  It's my hope to bring my two passions, photography and poetry, together to create POETIC IMAGES. 


This website, POETIC IMAGES:  THE PHOTOS, will feature my photos.  You can view my photos with my poetry by clicking on the image at the bottom of each page on this website.


Thank you for visiting this place for sharing my work and passions.
