I am a retired professor of architecture with a desire to improve my photographic skills. Inspired by the talented work displayed on this site, I have decided to support the site by purchasing a subscription and to contribute some of my own photos. I have traveled internationally and will upload some travel photography, but my primary interest is in the beautiful landscape surrounding my home in the Palouse country of eastern Washington State. I have experimented with digital photography for several years (Canon PowerShot S3 IS.) I purchased my first DSLR camera last year (Nikon D5100.) Your comments and criticisms are most welcome!
