Current Experience Level?

advanced beginner?

What is your favorite theme you photograph?

landscapes, waterscapes - all of nature, travel, architecture, people and animals - especially dogs

What do you shoot with?

Olympus OMD-E-M5, Micro 4/3; also my iPhone (the best camera is the one you have with you.)

What do you hope to get out of the group?

More opportunities to shoot locally, learn new skills and become a better photographer - particularly travel photography. I'm looking for new opportunities for recreation and to meet interesting people. I have taught at two universities in Argentina and a university in Chile; also at the University of Padua, not far from Venice, Italy. The University of Padua was founded in the 1200s; Galileo and Copernicus were faculty there. What amazing history! I'm so grateful for my international teaching and photo ops!


I'm feeling like a stranger in a strange land-just returned from India after 2½ years teaching Restorative Justice in their National Law Universities. I'm a social worker turned lawyer turned mediator & peacemaker. What's Restorative Justice? Ask me!
