I am an American expat who moved to Cornwall in 2006. After a former life as a associate professor, taxi driver, beet packer and family therapist, and mystery writer , I wanted to pursue my first love – photography. I enrolled in a degree program to get a start on learning technique and spent two years on a Bodmin Moor project along with a poet and a visual artist. Since then I have worked with a mentor, Lou Smith, in London. After a lifetime of using words, I find that my photography has a truth heretofore inaccessible to me.

    Moving from language to images must be like visiting another country without any bearings…

    Well, I’m dumbfounded and a little teary that you decided to follow me, too. That may be the tail-end of my pneumonia making me emotional, though.

  4. How is your eye sight doing? Can you use it to take pictures?

    Thanks for asking. My eyesight is poor but stable and I can still take photos. Thank heavens for that. I’ll be posting new stuff soon.

    Beet-packer? I’ve never run across one of those before. How did you happen upon it?

    I lived in North Central Minnesota on a far. Work in sugar beet processing was one of the only ways to earn a living so I spent a winter shovelling beet pulp. It was a filthy, thankless job and d dry morning I awake happy not to be there.
