As far back as I can remember – I have been attracted to photographs, images, paintings and other forms of catching a moment in time. Little did I know back in grade school that this interest would be common link for both my professional and personal life! One of my favorite pastimes today is surfing the Internet – looking at specific and general Blog and Web Sites that contain these priceless pieces of art.
In 1960, my Dad married June (our second step-mother) who was an artist in her own right and her father – Vernon was a practicing minister, farmer, journeyman carpenter, engaging story-teller, a World War 1 photographer veteran and all around wonderful person to know and be around. It wasn't until after I had joined the Navy that I learned about his efforts during his war – taking photos by leaning out of plans and hot air balloons. A few years later – I learned that he had kept current on photos/images being taken by man and unmanned vehicles and various space platforms. Sadly, he passed before I was able to bring him to Washington, DC for special meeting on where we were and going in the imagery business.
