What area of town do you live?

I live in the Sera Mesa/Kearny Mesa area near Sharp's Hospital. I've lived in WI, MA, RI, IL, CA, AK, & PA, with my top 2 favorite places being Fairbanks, AK and, of course, San Diego.

Favorite locations/places to shoot photos?

My favorite place is still good old Planet Earth. I haven't done much shooting in outer space yet, with the operative words being MUCH and YET. There's still just too much on earth to shoot, but one of these days ......

What type of camera and related equipment do you use?

My main cameras are my Mamiya RB67 and my Rollei TLR, I also have a couple of Pentax 35mm's and every now and then I'll even dig out my old Speed Graphic 4x5 :)

Who are some of your favorite photographers?

No answer yet

Digital or film?

I currently use a digital P&S for proofing in place of polaroids but for anything serious I still shoot with film and probably will until it's no longer available.


I retired from my photography business in 1989 to open my first art gallery/custom frame shop later that same year. Let's get together & talk about photography, art, digital imaging and/or picture framing. http://www.Kowers...­

    Hi Marty,
    Thanks for the note about film screenings.
    I'm most interested in "Pompeii" because of my obsessive fascination over volcanoes, especially, the most lethal of all, like Pompeii. It's too bad there's no ticket available for me :(
    I can't wait to see the movie, which starts Friday; unfortunately, I have a ballet to go to, so I'd have to wait till Saturday.
    Yes, I would appreciate seeing another movie screening, and since I'm self-employed, my schedule is flexible.

    Hi Marty, there is something you mentioned that caught my interests. As open to people working and seeking for solutions. First of all I see your reason to stay at home and care for your loved one. My name is Cathrina. I am from the island of Guam, part of why I chose this site because it has a large variety of topics, ideas, special interest groups and so much more. Do you find it hard to sometimes just chose one program to focus on? Have you ever considered health & Wellness.
