My father gave me my first 35mm SLR when I was in college, and I have been captive ever since, publishing photos of barn fires in the Lebanon (Ohio) Western Star and a most evocative dead fish in my college magazine. But I moved on. Passing through that phase when all photos are of the kids, I have, through career and following the kids around the world, honed my photo passions and synchronized them with my love interests in nature, wildlife, geography, anthropology, and travel. The Ramblin Images (the name intended to reflect a lingering fondness for dated folk music sensibilities) are personal, slightly exotic, sometimes exceedingly lucky, often quite beautiful, and, I hope, interesting enough to a number of you out there. The photograph on this page is the only known picture of the artist/author actually ramblin'.
A word on the wildlife. All images are of wild animals. There are no shots of animals in zoos,on game farms or otherwise captive. Some are from wildlife refuges, like the National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where the elk are free ranging but there is supplemental feeding in winter.
