I'm a gregarious, fun loving chap from Venice California.
This Flickr account is mostly about growing my subject matter.
Love music and sonic landscapes.
Love my country.
Love nature.

Received my first subscription to Organic Gardening magazine when I was twelve. Been an avid organic gardener ever since. Started taking photographs just out of high school with a Canon Ftb camera as a graduation gift. Shot in B&W, processing my own film and prints... also loved shooting Kodachrome 64 color transparency film.

    "I feel honored to be the first to write Robert a testimonial. I like the variations in Robert's work. Every shot tells a different story and meanings to it. One thing I admired in his work is his beautiful straight out images from the camera.That is one thing I'm not daring enough to try.
    You will be amazed with the beautiful landscape images and botanicals he shares in his photostream. One beautiful shot after the other!!
    He has a wonderful sense of humor , a gentleman and thoughtful. Thanks Robert for your constant visits and wonderful comments.You have been a great flickr friend!! I sincerely wish you the best and many more presentations will be sharing with us!
    Thank you!"

    "Robert, I was just reading over the profiles of some of my flickr friends and was surprised to find no testimonials for you. Lets fix that.

    Thanks for all the thoughtful comments you've made about my garden and photos. You are a better photographer than me and I've appreciated the hints you've given me here. Of course, I'm mostly on flickr to network with other extreme gardeners like yourself and to enjoy yours and their garden creations. Thank you also for hosting several good garden groups here on flickr but especially for Southern California Gardens and now California Gardens (where I can play too). You've been a very genial host. Here's hoping your garden will always amaze you and that you continue to post what you see there here where we can share it with you.
