The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Armstrong Air & Space Museum


My son and I drove the short distance to Wapakoneta, Ohio today to visit the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. As most of you know Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon. As a young teenager in July of 1969 I and many others around the world was glued to our TV watching that historic event. Just a couple years later he moved to my hometown, Lebanon Ohio, where I played on the high school tennis team with his oldest son.

Then a few years later as I was applying for a slot to attend the Marine Corps Officer Candidate School, Neil Armstrong was one of my 6 references I submitted for my application. So it was a great day revisiting some of our country’s important history.
