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 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, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.

  1. I too am a fan of cemeteries. There are so many stories there, both happy and sad. I especially enjoy visiting cemeteries in foreign countries. Every country (and even many states) is different – there are so many customs surrounding cemeteries.

    1. Indeed. We just had El Dio des los Muertos. I think it is a lovely custom to take the family to the graveyard with a picnic basket and blanket, in order to eat among lost loved ones.

    1. Thank you! I love to wander in cemetaries, reading the inscriptions, imagining the lives of people, some of whom lived centuries ago. Especially poignant are the markers for infants and children.
