Many thanks for visiting the site. Having retired from the City University of New York in 2003, I can now allocate more time to my lifelong interest in nature, travel, and photography. The subjects are usually people on city streets and in villages, nature, and wildlife. As a vertebrate paleontologist for over forty years, I managed to get around the world to many interesting places, was privileged to glance at various cultures, and saw some unspoiled nature. My wife and I travel quite a bit and photography is my focus on these trips. Unfortunately most of my many thousands of film and slide captures are not suited for digital display (although I am slowly scanning prints, negatives, and slides with good results for eventual posting; also using Scan Cafe for slides). The galleries that I keep adding to this site represent my engagement with digital photography, beginning in 2001.

The files in the galleries were taken with the Fujifilm S1, S2, S3, and S5 Pro , Nikon D200, Nikon D300, D3, and Nikon D5100 DSLRs, and some fine P&S cameras such as the Canon PowerShot S series up to and including the S95, Fujifilm F30, F70, F770 and S200, Canon G9 and G11, Panasonic LX3, LX5, and the Panasonic FZ50 (one of the great classics), FZ28, FZ35 superzooms. In the past I also used the Olympus classics C 5050, C8080, all great cameras in their time.

The Olympus E-1, Pen E-PL3, E-PL5 OM-D E-M1, the fine llittle Olympus XZ-1, and a large collection of 4/3 and m4/3 lenses (along with the EC-14 tele-converter and MMF-2, 3) make up my Oly stable. Increasingly the latest Olympus cameras OM-D EM-1 and E-PL5, Th Fuji X-T1, Panasonic GX8,  and the Nikon Df are now primarily my shooting paraphernalia.

I love Brazil a lot. Brazil is a country where freedom can be experienced in real. These photos are awesome and I loved the third picture. The 11th picture shows the normal life in Brazil. You are a great photographer my friend.

Dear Fred!

Your photos always brighten up my life and every day I'm looking forward to your emails with interesting political information.

Thank you very much for your efforts!

These and previous photos sent to me by Walter Bock are wonderful, and it is nice you labelled them to place. I envy simple things like the Canadian Rockies where the mountains in the distance are visible as well as the scene in the foreground.

It's almost 1 year ago that we had that superb trip to Southern India. Your wonderful pictures solidify the memories.
Thanks
