Personal Interests

Perhaps my experience as a military brat has influenced me.  I love to travel.  I am particularly fascinated by the varieties of architectural designs present around the world.  It seems unimaginable to me that straight lines and angles can create such unity in a single building or structure, or that ancient stone can be carved into such fluid curving lines.  It is not uncommon for me to shoot off an entire roll of film without a single person present in any of the photos, which brings me to my second love, photography. Other interests also include scrap booking, hiking and, home page design.

The Trevi Fountain in Rome.

This is one of my favorite photos.
It falls into the "you don't see that everyday" category!

I took it in Dutch Harbor Alaska, a small island halfway down the Aleutian Chain. The island was just big enough for a commercial runway, nothing left to spare, not even for the road.

A friend and I stand on the port side of the vessel for a photo with a view of the Siberian coast.

One of the rough English translations
for the Bearing Sea from Russian is the "Gray Zone". You can see why.

Needless to say the coastline didn't show up in the photo.

We were just off the Kamchatka Peninsula.

My trip to Paris in May of 1999 was a bit of a bust. The museum workers were on strike, and every historical building in Paris was covered in scaffolding. (They were getting ready for the Millennium Celebrations.)

This photo was taken outside Le Louvre.

I wonder how long this student had saved to come to Paris.


This was a five day pack trip I took in the Sawtooth Mountain Range in Idaho.

I learned that one can not live on granola alone, although it is sure light to pack!
