- I am an unschooled hobbyist photographer who occasionally takes a pleasing picture (even a blind squirrel finds an acorn). Someday perhaps I will take a photography class and learn the rules and find out how my camera works.
Although my day job (as a lawyer/consultant who advises on global real estate portfolios and assists developing countries in the creation of legal systems) has nothing to do with photography, I grew up painting and with painters as parents (from whom I learned not to try to earn a living from my art), so I have some sense of composition and color.
More important, my work takes me on frequent travel from my home in New York to interesting countries and all parts of the U.S. and Canada, so I am afforded many opportunities to use my camera. Some of my assignments, recently, require me to inspect vast manufacturing facilities that are immense and often in quite remote locations, and I think they may offer some interesting photo opps.
Although there is little that I photograph that is worthy of critique, nor am I qualified to offer an informed opinion, I am glad to have this opportunity to share some of my better pictures and the places I have been, and to hear and offer comments.
