Artist statement:

John has been actively pursuing photography since 1960.  John worked in a national park that summer and his roommate bought him a small 35mm camera and it was off to the races.
He has done many things in photography over the years, some landscape, some lighthouses, some human interest, and some sports related for his kids and grandkids.  Over the past 12 years, he and his wife Marcie have traveled internationally to participate in mission work and have had the good fortune of returning home through a dozen or more countries.  While there, of course, they worked on photography in every country they traveled. September’s theme is AFTER DARK which is featuring photographs taken at night.  Included are such icons as the Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and a few other from France, as well as many things closer to home.
