I have longstanding interests in photography, history, and travel. I've been doing photography since about 1984. I've been photographing historic buildings casually for a number of years. Around 2006-2010 I photographed lighthouses in the New England area and beyond. More recently I have been photographing historic tombstones for Find a Grave.
I was delighted to find a new outlet for my passions in the 2012 "Wiki Loves Monuments" photo contest. I was pleased to discover that there were a bunch of National Historic Places in my area that had not been photographed. The list of wiki monuments gave me subjects to photograph both in the New England area where I live, but also in places I visited.
I am gratified that my image of Al Mac's Diner was selected as the third place winner in the 2012 Wiki Loves Monuments U.S. Photo contest.
My image got nominated for the international finals of Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, the world's largest photo contest!
