I am a native of New Mexico and a Utah resident for 50 years.
Worked in the Petroleum Refining business as an Engineer for 37 years before
retiring in 1992.
As a photographer I'm a rank amateur but have always loved to take pictures.
I stand in awe of the
quality of pictures on the Utah Birds website. My first 35mm camera was a
1949 vintage Kodak Pony--totally manual--ASA 25 slide film. I love to tie
flies and to fly fish.
Basically I just love to take pictures, especially
wildlife. You can't beat photography for building memories. Ever so often I
get lucky and get a good pic. See deer pic [below]
have a couple of digital cameras but currently use a Canon S2IS. I love the
12X optical tele and although it doesn't do anything superbly it does a lot
of things pretty darned well.
