“Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees.”
― Paul Strand

Well into my 3rd year here, started January 2015. Sstill plugging along, but not focused on daily posts. But I love the community, enjoy the challenges, plan to stick around.

I'm a long time serious hobbyist. I've been doing photography for over 40 years, from "wet" b&w darkroom to the digital. I've dabbled in a lot of areas, from my college newspaper to microstock. But mostly just for my own satisfaction (and sanity). I have a preference for B&W, scenics and decay. But I'm not exclusive to anything. And a strong believer that the best camera is the one you have with you.

With a full time job and a family, I don't have as much time to shoot as I'd like. Born in West Virginia, spent my teen years in Pittsburgh, college in North Carolina... My first (real) job was i Washington DC... Hanging out in the middle part of the USA for almost 30 years.

I have a couple of blogs, LSquared goes back to late 2004, and actually existed as an AOL member page before that...
