Welcome to my photo portfolio. I am a practicing orthopaedic surgeon in northern Ohio and my passion is amateur photography.I hope you enjoy browsing through my galleries. I have a variety of outside interests ranging from diving, hiking, fishing and travel which all blend well with photography. I especially enjoy nature photography. As Forest Gump would say," life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get." This is how I view nature photography. You never know what you are going to see or what surprises nature has in store for you that day. Being able to capture what nature reveals, and then sharing that experience and image with others, is very rewarding to me. My late father-in-law's favorite saying was, "Here's your hat, what's your hurry?" In other words, slow down and take time to smell the roses. Photography has taught me to be more patient and a much better observer of the world around us. Thanks for dropping by my photo site. Please come back again as I strive to improve and expand my photographic skills and add new images to this collection.
