Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
- Ansel Adams
I'd be happy with six.
When my dad was a young man, he was a photography instructor in the US Army Signal Corps. (A remarkable man on so many levels. But that's another story.) He put a Kodak Brownie in my hands as soon as I could walk, talk and reason, such as it was. I have been an off and on, half-assed, not-very-good photographer almost all my life.
Now I take it a little more seriously. But only a little. (I hate "serious" photographers, don't you? What complete and utter asses!)
I had a stroke. I can't see as well as I used to. (understatement.) A neurologist told me I should take up a hobby that exercised my vision.
So now I capture light in expensive little boxes. Sometimes on an array of light sensitive silicon, and increasingly on sheets of light sensitive plastic.
I hope you enjoy the results as much as I enjoy the process.
I'm currently shooting mostly with:
Wista 45DX - 4x5 field camera
Cambo Master PC - 4x5 monorail
Hassleblad 500 c/m - 6x6
Nikon D800 - full frame digital
Does anyone think I'm under 21? I'm 61.
I'm never going to be famous. I don't do anything, not one single thing. I used to bite my nails, but I don't even do that any more.

I don't care what anybody says about me as long as it isn't true.
