A trip to Africa in summer of 2007 re-kindled my love of photography. My favorite subjects include birds, wildlife, sports, nature landscapes, and of course, my experience in Africa.

Please enjoy the beauty and serenity of nature, the ballet of sports action, and the people & scenery of Malawi in these galleries.

I am impressed by your photography skills. You can actually compete against a professional photographer by the quality with which you have done these photographs. I am pretty sure that you do know the very tricks of photography.

Hi Allen:
Just followed the link to your photos of the flycatcher at HMB from the GGAS e-newsletter. Wow! Your pics are amazing! Please put me on your email list--would love to keep up with your bird & nature photography.

Having spent my youth in San Francisco and the East Bay, I appreciated the view of your camera to many sights that were familiar. I've hiked along the Coastal Range from Fairfax to Santa Cruz.
