I am an engineer, a photographer, a writer, a traveler, a tech geek and a student of the human condition.
I retired after working for 40 years at a Navy Laboratory. Now I have more time to pursue my personal interests and to share my experiences, my pictures, and my musings.
For my thoughts on topics other than photography, technology and travel, click to go to my Ken Photo Geek’s Bubbling Brain Blog…
Three questions I frequently I get are "Why Photography", "What are you trying to say" and "What do you do with your pictures.
The answer to first question is easy, but multi-part. I have always wanted to express myself artistically, but I dance like a rusty robot, sing like a frog with a sore throat, and I can't even draw a stick figure. I have always enjoyed photography, beginning with shooting at the New York World's Fair in 1964/65 with an Instamatic 100 camera. But, why photography? The answer is "Photography provides me with tools that allow me to express myself artistically and creatively in a way that is understandable to other people, and in a way that I enjoy."
The second question is, perhaps the hardest to answer. Even though I do have some themed projects (see the Photo Projects page of the website), typically, I shoot what I see in front of me. I do street/urban photography in cities. I do nature and landscape photography when I am in the countryside. I do travel photography when I am traveling. It is a real mixed bag, with a lot of overlap, that I think says "This is how I see the world around me."
As to the third question, I really don't have a good answer. Obviously, I have this website, which I hope you are enjoying. I also post photos to social media, primarily Instagram and Facebook. In the past, I have participated in camera club competitions, hoping to get some helpful critique. After many years of competitions, I found that helpful critiques were few and far between, so I have stepped back from that for now. In the last year I have sold some of my work and have began to print more. I have had a couple of opportunities to exhibit my work, and I will try to get it into more exhibits in the future. So, at this time the answer is "I post to social media and print some images, while I figure out the next step."
