I have always loved photography. Digital has made it all so quick and creative! I am learning so much on Flickr, and have made many friends. It is delightful, fascinating, and at times very moving and awe inspiring. Love to all my Flickr friends. I appreciate sharing here. It is so satisfying in our physically fragmented world.
I am a retired physicist (Ph.D., Physics, MIT, 1965). I love in Tucson, Arizona, Southwestern USA.
I love Ballet. I help out with studio and theatre photography at Arizona Ballet Theatre Company
I am a passionate photographer. It is my main hobby, and I am never without a camera. I enjoy all types of photography.
As an adult, I started photography with Nikon F film cameras and a variety of Nikkor lenses. I mainly used Kodachrome II film.
I have a Canon 70D with a variety of Canon lenses mainly for use in the theatre or the studio. I do have a Tamron 18 to 300mm lens that is fun to use on nature walks.
My main camera, currently, is a Canon PowerShot SX60 HS camera with a sixty times zoom and a reasonably wide angle at the lower end. It is quite sharp throughout its range, and it has a viewfinder.
I walk with the aid of a stick for stability. A major advantage of the SX60 HS is that it it is small and light enough for me to carry around my neck. I also use an iPhone 6 Plus camera for photo-ops when my main camera is not available.

"Chic is the type contact that you really miss when he's offline. His fantastic captures of the Arizona Ballet Theatre provide class and beauty. And his comments are so generous, thoughtful and kind. He is a perfect example of why Flickr is a community, not just a place to post pictures."
