I"m an avid intermediate level amateur photographer who loves working with nature and especially macro photography

I live in Fort Lauderdale with my wife and our two kids, a 23yr old son and an 21 year old daughter.

 

I've been to hell and back with a lifetime's use of drugs and alcohol. You name it and I've used it. I got clean before crack cocaine but I did plenty of freebase and tons of various kinds of opiates!

 

I now have over 29 years clean( November 19th 1982)...hence the nickname Mr Clean1982...that...AND the fact that I have a completely shaved head.

 

My Mother passed away very suddenly, late last year and the grief was unbearable. I have been blessed with hundreds of wonderful friends...but my Mom, truly was my best friend.

 

When my wife bought me a camera for our 19th wedding anniversary, I felt the world come alive again! I see things through the eye of the lens and I've become so much more aware of the world around me...maybe THAT'S why I love macro so much!

 

A friend turned me on to Flickr in January and I've been "logged in" ever since!

I'm looking forward to becoming a better photographer with the help of the people here!

Besides being one of the nicest guys here on Flickr, he holds the prestigous rank, of Master Photographer. He probably doesn't even know it yet.. He is a comically gifted and photograpically adept.. The macros he presents are with the most vivid color and clarity.. He truly loves marco and as so do I.

From the earliest time I can remember, my “big brother” Kenny looked at the world through the lens of the camera. As we were growing up, he was incredibly passionate about photography – he even turned an old backyard shed into a darkroom, spending hours turning out one masterpiece after another. Kenny was never afraid to experiment, and his work was truly amazing, with a maturity that belied his years. As he got older, his passions changed just a bit, and he got involved in some pretty bad stuff (as he is quite open to discuss with you, if you’d like!). Now, almost 25 years clean and sober, and with the help of a new digital camera from his beautiful wife Jamie, he has rediscovered his first passion … and lucky us, we get to share in this beauty. Kenny is one of the warmest, funniest and most generous human beings I’ve ever met, and I think all of that comes through in his art. He’s also incredibly supportive – just the fact that you’re reading this means you were touched in some way by his photos or his thoughts and comments. Kenny, thank you for introducing me to Flickr when I wasn’t sure I’d belong, (and for the Pro Account!) I love you - your baby sister, Vicky

Your photostream is just delightful! It will take me a while to absorb it all. For me nature's beauty and a sense of humor are essentials in life--and learning, always learning. Just wanted to thank you for adding me as a contact.

I have not yet read such a candid and self confessed introduction of a person. It makes me like you more and remember you for my lifetime. It is so beautiful to see the positivity you have, which is so apparent from your absolutely magnificent photography. It not only shows your outside but also what lies within you. Your world is so clean, as I can see from your photostream. Trust me what you have gone through and how you have changed in last 24 years is a lot to do with determination and will power. That reflects from the clarity and composition of your photos, which really requires so much patience to achieve such perfection. I have always loved your photos, but read your profile today and trust me I immediately felt like writing to you. That is how impacting your description is. Touched my heart!! But above all, your photos touch my soul. BEAUTIFUL!! NITIN, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Rarley will you find a photostream with such consistently high-quality images. The level of perfection in each photo is one that few will ever achieve. Not only is each image so technically well executed, they are also stunningly artistic and creative! I find it very hard to believe that this hasn't been a lifelong endeavor to reach this level of competence and talent. MrClean1982's work is no doubt professional caliber. Thank you MrClean for sharing your art with us all.

MrClean 1982 became one of my first contacts when i sold my soul to flickr earlier this year, and I am compelled and honoured to write my first testimonial in tribute to his glorious photography. When you first glimpse this photosteam, the quality,vibrancy and clarity of the work is what first grabs you, and pulls you straight in, and on closer inspection you feel the passion and wonder he has for the beautiful world that surrounds him, this is presented sometimes with humour and always with sensitivity. As an artist he nails it EVERY time and as a flickr friend, warm, fun and generous. If you havn't been through this photostream yet, you must, and those of you I see nodding in agreement as you read these words, you obviously know his work already. Mr Clean (Kenny) I look forward wholeheartedly to seeing much more from you, your photos for me are a warm and happy place to be, my flickr world wouldn't be as rich without you. Thankyou so much for sharing your world with us.
