Jodphur, India |1982| from Early Adventures
Like many photographers, my interest in photography started with travel.
Jim (my life-partner) introduced me to travel in the developing world with a trip to India in 1982. He also bought me my very first camera (a simple 35mm point-and-shoot) to take along on that journey. Photography and travel were forever-after intertwined for me!
I believe that the photo, above, ' launched ' my journey as a photographer. It was the clear standout (best composition, most compelling subject matter) of all the photos that I took on that first trip to India. And that became the impetus to learn how to create better, more consistent images going forward.
The galleries in Journeys are a bit like photographic ' eye-candy ' -- photos that are heavy on drama/beauty. They were chosen to hold your attention as individual images; they do not attempt to tell a complete visual story of any one destination.
A couple of organizational notes:
Early Adventures covers multiple trips spanning two decades. All the photos are from my ' film era.' (24 images total)
Each of the remaining galleries focuses on an individual trip. These images are all digital capture. (approximately 15 images in each gallery)
I plan to add more mini-collections from my past (and future) travel adventures to this page.
So, I hope that you will check back from time to time to see more of what has caught my eye around the world!
