For Fifty Five years, capturing images has always been a passion of mine. The INTERNET has helped to transform boxful's of photos from times gone by into well organized, on line photo albums and galleries. Viewing the past is a way of capturing forever, times that would otherwise be lost in time. Photographs are a portal sending us all back to more innocent times. I have been retired from the Engineering arena for over 10 years and am also a retired Military disabled Veteran ( Army ). I can now devote more time to the pleasures of Digital Photography. I have been married for over 45 years to the same loving woman. We have two great children who have given us three wonderful grandsons, and recently a granddaughter, to the tune of over 80,000 Photos, some of them can be found here. My Wife, Anna Marie has captured the essence of these three boys and our granddaughter Violet into masterful pieces of scrap-booking journalism. Anna Marie has a great eye for Photography, and a very creative ability to capture photos and create stories in scrap-booking style .
