ABOUT ME

I have spent my working days as an IT professional until last year, when I retired and was able to dedicate more time to my photography.

I got myself a Kodak Brownie when I was 10 or 11 and discovered the magic of B&W pictures. Years later, when our son was born, it was time for an SLR – a Minolta, and I never stopped taking pictures. Over the years, the snapshots became better composed, I learned about color theory and discovered the beauty of light. I switched from a B&W and Prints-from-Slides darkroom to digital cameras and Photoshop Elements in 2005.

I am drawn to the light which paints the flowers, to the geometric lines of urban landscapes, and to everything that catches my eye.


I hope you will enjoy these photographs.

The Olivier House in St-Martinville

n the early 1800s, Pierre Olivier Duclozel de Vezin, a wealthy Creole, acquired a property in St-Martinville, Louisiana, to raise cotton, cattle, and eventually, sugarcane. He built the Maison Olivier, the circa 1815 plantation house which is the central feature of Longfellow-Evangeline State Historical Park. His son, Charles, made improvements to the home in the 1840s. The structure is an excellent example of a Raised Creole Cottage, a simple and distinctive architectural form which shows a mixture of Creole, Caribbean, and French influences.
