I taught English in Damascus for two years and love returning there to take photos of special friends I made and people I meet or see in the street. I hope to present images without the "exotica"; instead I want to show the energy and spirit of people in Damascus today. Damascus itself is a very special backdrop, so I hope I capture the look of the city, as you might find it if you visit.

The images from China date me. I lived in Xian and Shanghai in the 70s.

I also like experimenting with my camera (and much more recently image editing) closer to home.


I had an Olympus camera with me in China. The 2008 and 2009 photos were taken using my first digital, a Canon G10, which I loved but lost. Now my current challenge in life is to learn the manual settings on a Canon 7D.
