My careers have included travel agent (14 yrs.), desktop publisher (3 yrs.), and communications director for a large church (25 yrs.); now retired (as of Jan. 4, 2019). I have a BA in Art History. Through it all, I've been happiest while behind the camera, composing an image, whether as part of my job or simply for the pure joy of creating.

 

In the past two or three years, I have started experimenting with collage work. On the photography front, I have dipped bak into analog, although the expense of film & processing has limited the scope that endeavor!

Dave’s excellent technical and artistic photographic talents are apparent to anyone that views his work. Setting him apart is that he is the most honest and supportive experienced photographer I have ever met. If he gives a favorable comment you can trust that it is serious. My biggest photographic compliment was being included in the same Cummer Art Gallery photographic exhibit (a juried contest) for Florida St. Johns River photos with Dave and he encouraged my participation. I first met Dave on Fotolog and then here at Flickr. Later I met him and talented Lois of Lebanon (Jaemes Sister) at a local restaurant and then Dave and I met for breakfast from time to time at a local greasy spoon. Since Dave was a Connecticut Yankee I was concerned that he would not like our local “down home” spots. Not to worry. He fit right in. In fact, every time I have gone to Grumpy’s for breakfast without him they have asked, “Where is your northern friend? Bring him back.”

I got to know Dave and his photographs over at fotolog.net first and was happy to see him over here after a while too. From the start on I enjoyed visiting his photostream. His photographs show not only the beauty of this world but also what drives himself, which is his faith. It's his gift, to convey both through his images and I am thankful he shares this gift with all of us here at flickr.

Dave’s photographic images have, over many months now, been a delight to follow and are such a source of inspiration and entertainment for me. The imagery, often combined with a Christian message, is so well observed and captured. And I've never seen such an amazing, ongoing series - ‘Found crosses’ - at Fotolog (and now here) where we met. And to top it all, 'eye2eye' is so complimentary and encouraging to other contributors. It is always a delight to upload and catalogue one's own photography.... but, when DAVE leaves a message, it makes it all so worthwhile, and spurs me on to greater things. A creative and thoroughly pleasant guy! ('just a pity he lives on the the other side of the Atlantic!)

Dave's images are for us as a trip to the unknow, where great and intriguing surprizes all-ways filled with pure and sensible beauty belongs too. The lines, the way he frames, the lights, the textures and the colors are deeply respected, greatly captured and enjoyed by him, and always plays the most harmonic and beaultiful simphony! Is a page where you always have awesome surprizes when you visit and where you somehow feel respected. He is very careful about his work, and about the work of people he visits too. His attention in his work and in details shows too in his incredibly clever and attentious coments about other people works. Is a gift to visit and to be visited by Dave, and to see here and in his coments how attentious he is about details and how much he sees!! Is quite often that he sees more than we saw in our own images and works!! Here you have a photographer with opened heart and mind that sees things trought the eyes of love, respect and gratitude. And he shows that for us with enormous joy and respect. The same he shows for every other friends images. We deeply admire you Dave!! As a photographer and as a great and special person. Dave,is a gift to have you here, THANK YOU!
