I’m a retired English instructor (B.A. English at N.C State University, MA in Comparative Literature from UNC-Chapel Hill). I enjoy photographing around my native North Carolina and have traveled often to Europe for study, travel, photography, and visits to relatives and friends. In my days of film photography from my home darkroom and that of Cape Fear Community College, where I taught, I owe thanks to Wayne Upchurch, who gave insights in his courses there. In 1984 I had a show of Infrared photography in Wilmington, which coincided with publication of a booklet of poems and photographs I wrote called Pathways and Gradations. My old Pentax 6x7 is gone now, replaced by digital cameras. In 2007 I enjoyed a 9-day workshop on Crete with photographer Steve Outram. I am a member of my local camera club, the Cape Fear Camera Club. Landscape and travel photography are two of my main focuses. I have a website at http://brightimages.smugmug.com I’m a new PSA member and look forward to participating in its activities.
