Images & Observations

About

I first became passionate about photography in the 1960’s when my workhorse cameras were an Argus C4 35mm rangefinder camera and a Crown Graphic 4X5 camera; developing images in chemical filled darkrooms, and I had aspirations of becoming a photojournalist. In 1965 reality intervened and I shipped out with the United States Navy. Subsequent to my naval service, and due to my need to support myself, I entered in to a forty year career in the banking industry and ultimately retired from a position as a senior technology manager.

During the intervening years my passion for photography dwindled, becoming all but non-existent. I was not a part of the photography scene when the digital revolution began. Beginning in 2009 my passion for creating images through photography resurfaced and I began teaching myself digital photography techniques. The basic fundamentals of capturing light have never changed, but camera controls and “developing” techniques took on new paradigms via technological evolution. Catching up to the technology, I have begun and continue to perfect my skills using the new tools available. Savoring the power and diversity of photographic imaging in the digital workspace. Exploring the world with a new vigor and ability to share the images that are in my mind’s eye with everyone.

I have been disabled since 2008 and rely upon my “better half” for a  hell of a lot of my daily needs, including driving our van, carrying camera gear and setting-up photos, I am allowed, when not otherwise “impaired” to pilot my own power chair, but dependence on the chair does limit my ability to stake out the perfect spot for the camera when creating shots. I figure that process will either force me to be more creative in my “chair view” shots, or rehabilitate myself to re-learn how to stand up and take a few steps.

For this, and so much else in my life, I am supremely grateful for the love of Judy Carol Frost.

  4. Hey, thanks for stopping by “oneowner”, I appreciate your interest and comments. Sharing the images is the primary driver, but being able to discuss them with others who have a similar interest is the icing on the cake.

  8. Hi, Wayne. I am sorry to learn that you are currently disabled, but very happy for you that you have come full circle back to your first love — photography. I was looking for Carol to wish her a happy birthday (on this April Fool’s Day of 2012) and found you. I think I would have recognized you if I ran into you somewhere. You still look like you could be a rabbi. I’m also happy that you have what sounds like a deep and mutually supportive love in your life.

    Hi Wayne,

    It has been many many years since you and I had any contact. Recently I received an email from a distant cousin, Bruce DeLis, and he sent me your link. I am sorry to hear about your disability, however it sounds like you have learned to cope, which is something we all have to do! If you feel like it send me your email and we can take this offline.

    Regards,
    Mike Schachter
