My World Visitor Map!
I'm a family man and a Computer Programmer.
I enjoy taking photos and creating digital art too. I use Photoshop, Photo Explosion Deluxe, and Picasa3 to alter photos.
There is a little of everything in my photostream but I keep it family friendly. You can find animals, flowers, nature landscapes, sci-fi like images, abstract artsy type images, funny images, family photos, and even old family photos from scans.

*Roshie Is Alive & Well* says:
"Aside from rick's fine photoshopping and camera skills, it's fun glimpsing into this kind individual's family life in west Virginia, which he frequently documents...
He's one of the most generous, loyal flickrites...always goes through his alternate universe group pix and regularly comments on the pix in there...a real teddy bear!"

"Rick has been a long time friend here in the flickr world.
I enjoy his groups, from his, Age of Aquarius (60's,70's) to his ALTERED UNIVERSE. He has it happening!!!!
TBG'ers Keep it Together!!!"

"Wow, I am surprised that I am your first testimonial since you are so popular in TBG. Rick is an awesome guy with great photographic talent. He listens to the best music and takes pictures of "huh"? He really can make you wonder! I often tell him to put down the crack pipe. Well, nevertheless, Rick is a great guy to get to know. He can get real competitive with his humour in TBG but don't let it bug you. He's a great guy!"

"Rick has a talent of turning everything he sees everyday around him into something really special ... Rick, you are the best! :D
Without you, everywhere on flickr just looks colorless!!!"

"Rick can always be counted on to surprise, to delight or to bemuse! He sees things that most of us miss; he teases us with new perspectives on the ordinary. Best of all, his work is fun, bright, and exciting!"

"Rick and his entire family are my favorite relatives on my wife's side of the family. They are great people with great family values. Rick has the same interests as myself and is always a pleasure to be around! Why cant all inlaws be like them?!"
