I love taking photographs and telling stories. For reasons that often baffle me, people seem to enjoy both. My hope is to have fun with this blog. Expectations are that no one outside of family and a few friends will ever look twice at this site. Thus, I can just ramble on and keep posting photographs from the travels of life shared with my wife, Laura.
For 47 of my 65 years, I have been a professional photographer. For 27 years newspaper photojournalism was my calling with two stints at the Topeka Capital-Journal and four years at the Arizona Republic in Phoenix. Kansas Athletics at the University of Kansas has been my working home since 1997. My alma mater, Washburn University, and the College of Arts and Science named me their 2013 Alumni Fellow for my career achievements.
In this blog, I will happily share with you my fascinating life at KU in words and pictures as well as our travels and the stories that go along with them. My wife and I try to live an interesting and full life packed with love, passion and conviction. The hope is you’ll get a sense of that.
