My photography and iPhone cases are available for sale here:
It all began way back when I was about 5 or 6, and my father entrusted me with the safeguarding of a Kodak Brownie on a family trip. And so it began. Click. Freeze the moment. I was hooked. When I was older, I cashed in our books full of Pinky stamps from Steinberg's grocery store, and got myself a Kodak Instamatic X-15, which I still use today. It was the first camera of my very own, and it went everywhere with me.
Things haven't changed much in that department, some 40 years later. In fact the cameras haven't changed much either. I shoot more film than digital, mostly on very old cameras, and will do so until I run out of road...or chemicals. The tactile pleasure of holding a processed strip of Provia 120 just can't be equalled in the digital world. The saturation of the colours is like candy.
We used to have to drive right past a venerable old amusement park to get home. The thundering of the towering wooden roller coaster on those hot summer nights, and screams of the riders still echo in my ears to this day. It also goes a long way towards explaining my fascination with the Kodachrome colours of carnivals.
Photography isn't just about documenting life, but is also about expressing dreams and memories.
And yet, there's still time left over for travel, biking, climbing, astronomy, woodworking, and of course, cooking.

The Real Devil Doll says:
"Not only are Bob's photographs beautiful, but he's also a very nice person and self-described camera geek who will generously share his vast knowledge with those of us who don't know much about the technical aspects of cameras and photography. And he has a really cute cat."
