Not a serious photographer

Bio

That was me in the regular navy in the 1970's and in the army reserves a decade later. Other than than, I was Chief of a Secretary of State division detached to National Defence, and eventually a contractor in naval technical translation and republishing. Unfortunately, I developed chronic renal failure in my 20's and I eventually ended up on hemodialysis for four long years, while I waited for a kidney transplant from the waiting list. It eventually came one night, I was told from a young man who died as a result of an automobile accident. By that time, I had dropped out of the loop and now I'm a somewhat overqualified, rapidly-aging bum with a cheap camera or two.

Photographically, I once used an original Diana toy camera in the 1960’s, and I did the Tri-X and darkroom thing in the mid-1970's on weekends when I wasn't too busy with the navy. I am not now nor did I ever aspire to be a photographer, but I do enjoy doing documentary photography. You can see the sad results on this site, both vintage and current.
