Updates?  Not often.  Most of the stuff I like is not repeatable due to mergers and time.

A Short Bio  Links Page


The best, or at least the most interesting, photos on this site are those that I took back when orange WP units and BN merger locos rulled the Feather River Canyon, when Santa Fe and Union Pacific ruled Cajon and Tehachapi and when SP was king of the West.  There are host of excellent photographers out there today taking excellent pictures. Kit Courtner's Lunar Light Photography comes to mind.  The galleries below contain the best of my work.  I'll add a few current photos from time to time, but they are essentially static.  Please look and enjoy, most of the scenes can't be repeated.
