Tatt,
i've seen some of your pictures..Have you thought about some black and whites of unaware people? I have one of Ethan a girl caught as he jumped with hand and arm bent over his face to get away from the camera, it is spectacular..Try it please, I'd love to see what you get.

I have done a lot of candid works and i really enjoy it. Some of the homeless characters I have shot are awesome, and really shine when the camera is on them, they seem much more laid back then if a regular ol person see's me holding a camera in their general direction.

I have a few shots(4)in my gallery here, but it never lets me upload them for some reason...

Used to do : Woodworking ( country furniture) and sell them at the craft fairs. Can't do it anymore due to arthritis.
Hobbies now : Photography has always been a hobby since the 60's , professionally ( had a photography studio in NJ '86-89' ) Now I more or less freelance, stock photos , sell the photos as art and greeting cards. Other hobby is digital painting and canvas painting- watercolors, oils , acrylics. I also enjoy gardening, machine embroidery, sewing.
Back in the 70's and 80's , I had a motorcycle , I could repair a clutch, brake, change the oil on it. Also I enjoy reading, cooking , baking. Also did craft stuff like painting and decorating t-shirts and sweat shirts.

That it does, and I am actively pursuing it as a second job. I am hoping to get my space secured at the Eastern market in DC, where on the weekends I can sell some work, especially my stuff from Hawaii.

I forgot a very important hobby, music. I alway make it a point to play a little everyday. It has been a little more bluesy as of late, I think it is just representative of my mood lately...

Solo mountain biking is not fun and can be dangerous.

my point exactly. Like surfing alone, not a good idea.
