I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.


  1. I love looking at your photos. That’s what life really looks like to me!

    As for the feral kitty, he’s doing OK. He keeps coming around. Bought some canned food for him and he scarfs it down. The wound is looking OK and his eyes remain clear. He’s alert and moves around pretty good. So as long as he hangs in there, we’ll do what we can for him.

    I agree with your comment about ferals. Life is so unfair sometime. To think there’s some people who spend more on their pet in a year than anyone will on that poor cat in a lifetime. I wish I could take him in, but I just can’t. But I can feed him.

    • Good for you. I understand. We can each only do what we can do. We have three cats in a one bedroom. It’s a tight fit. If I had a big house, I’d have more pets. One dog equals three cats in terms of cost, time and effort. It’s work to be a pet owner, and it requires commitment. The worst thing one can do is bring an animal into a strained situation. That’s when it becomes hoarding. As long as the pets are all healthy and well cared for, people should have as many pets as they can handle.
