I recently semi-retired and moved back across the lake to Michigan City, Indiana (where I'd spent my youth), after calling Chicago, Illinois my home for almost 35 years. I spend a good deal of my time taking care of my 95-yr-old mother right now, but I still try to get out and shoot a pic whenever possible. I'm only an amateur photographer, but I believe my fascination for picture-taking might be hereditary, since my grandfather earned his living as a photographer in the early 1900's. My friends refer to me as "The Historian" because I'm always using my trusty little camera to record all the events in our lives. I just like to think of myself as a "Storyteller".
