Statement and Biography
"These images are of things I would normally be doing - hiking or taking long walks outdoors - and things I'm doing to compensate - Nordic Track indoors (if the weather doesn't cooperate). There is much beauty outside, and I hope to explore this beauty. My images will also deal with remote classes, remote Camera club meetings & remote coffees with friends. Isolation can be somewhat tolerable. Make it so!"
