Welcome to my new home page.  Both new and old websites will arrive at this same home page.

From 1984-2006, I operated the Photographic Image Gallery in downtown Portland.   When I opened there were only 12 galleries in Portland, and now there are dozens, maybe even tens of dozens.  Beginning with the initial  First Thursday event in 1985, Portland now boasts Last Thursday, First Friday, Third Thursday and dozens of artist studio tours, as well as emerging neighborhood gallery districts.

Each month I send out an e-newlsetter, Photo Happenings Portland, it seems there is something going on at every turn, and I will keep you updated with some of the Happnings that I find.

In retirement I have the opportunity to delve into something I have wanted to do for the last 40 years.  The history of the Central Oregon's Lower Desert has fascinated me, especially the people who lived there a century ago.
