Howdy... I'm a Texan y'all and an electrical engineer/physicist/computer nerd... I've had Macs since 1984. I currently have a house full of various Macs including my original 1984 128k still in working condition...

I am lucky to have 4 excellent models living with me... My beautiful wife V, beautiful daughter Katie, handsome son Anthony, plus Toby and Luna... our fine pups.

I currently use a tiny DMC-FX9 (katie's camera), a pocket zoom F70exr (v's camera), a small F30 for low light, a larger DMC-FZ5(ant's camera), a Rebel 400D XTi, a Canon 5d mkii, an Olympus EP-1, Fujifilm X-Pro1, and a DMC-GF2... and too many lenses too... canon 50f1.8, Sigma 18-200, tamron 17-50 f2.8, canon 70-300 IS, canon 85f1.8, canon 17-40L, oly 17f2.8, oly mft 40-150, oly mft 45f1.8, f.zuiko50f1.8, fuji 35f1.3, slr magic 35f1.7, voigtlander 40f1.4, slr magic 26f1.4, pany mft 14f2.5, pany mft 20f1.7, and a full frame tamron 28-75 f/2.8...

I walk/run 5-6 miles every morning at around 5am... always with a camera. Its an endless source of fun shots...

    "Tom is a very nice, smart, friendly Texan, who can also take fantastic photos. He will make you smile with his set of "cookie mom" photos of his beautiful wife, V. They are genius. He will make you fall in love with his aging father. I expect to someday be the first to get a signed copy of a "Dad" book by Tom. (not yet put together but someday, I hope) Take a look through his stream. You will agree with me."

    "Tom has a lust for his family and he is able to capture moments beautifully. He is creative in photography and writing. His stream can have me laughing out loud or crying but always waiting to see more."

    "Tom, it's amazing how your photogrphs make me think of you - a person whom I totally don't know and who lives thousands of miles away, - about what makes you happy, what makes you sad... Love is a great highlight that goes through almost all your pictures... Isn't it wonderful, photography can say and show all this?! Best regards and keep up! Maria"
