Photographer of the Month
"Although I have photographed since I was in high school, I became hooked with the purchase of my first digital camera in 2007. I am primarily a travel photographer since I lack the patience needed for other types of photography, but also because the great beauty and diversity of our planet urges me to document its manifestations in all their varied forms. My wife Grace and I love festivals and remote places where our increasingly homogenous culture, which threatens to destroy traditional ways of life, has has not yet penetrated, leaving other ways still reasonably intact. Our favorite places are the middle and far east, and also Europe. Over the years I have taught myself the basics of Photoshop. I am active in my photo club, the Delaware Photographic Society, have served as chairman of the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography for three years, and have achieved the Master level in exhibitions recognized by the Photographic Society of America. My intent is to make each image that I ultimately select for my “Best” folder a work of art that can stand on its own.
What can we add, except "Wow!"? We chose Tom this month because of his masterly use of color, but we have received so much more. Enjoy these stunning images that underline the universal humanity Tom finds everywhere he goes.
