My realization that photography can be fine art came gradually, beginning long ago when a friend, a photographer for and in the Navy, stationed at USNOTS in California, showed me prints of fantastic photos he had shot of the neighboring Sierra Nevada. I thought the reason they were so good was because he had the use of excellent, state-of-the-art equipment. Since then I have come to realize that, although it is good to have fine equipment, it is the skill, talent, imagination, inspiration, and creativity of the photographer that produce memorable images.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my images. Best wishes, John
