My digital photographs

I live in a very beautiful area of western Michigan, near the Indiana border. My town is Sawyer and I am a short walk from Lake Michigan. Frequently I walk down to the beach at dawn to take some photographs, often the views are spectacular. Only once or twice have I seen anyone else on the beach at that time, people don't know what they're missing. Here are few of my photographs, most were taken with a very small Pentax Optio S. It's only a 3.2 megapixel camera, but I can easily make large sharp 13 x 19" prints without any trouble.

Beach 1
I am thinking about doing a book of these photos and I have done a cover layout.

Beach 2
None of these photos have been altered in any way on the computer.

Beach 3
It seems that every morning is different, the colors and mood changing daily.

Beach 4
This shot happens to be taken at dusk.

Beach 5
Another photograph taken at sunset, the colors are unusually beautiful.

PentaxOptio S
Here's my tiny Pentax Optio S, it actually fits into that Altoids box and is very easy to carry around. I have several larger Pro cameras, but the Pentax is usually in my pocket when I go for a stroll.

Hi Rick,
Wow ! Great hearing from you, it's been a long time. After 10 years in New York City, Jeanne and I decided to move back to Michigan, been here about 15 years. Jeanne died about 5 years ago and I have a great new girlfriend Gloria, she found me on the internet. She has a couple of blogs, go to LINKS on my blog and check out Romance After 50 and The Romance Game. Gloria is a writer and photographer and was widowed for 22 years.
I'm busy doing a lot of painting and also computer art these days.
If you find an E-mail address for Del please send it to me and also your E-address. I keep in touch with a few of the old guys from way back, Ted Popowitz, Jim Fetter, Al Assid, Bob Hill, Lou McMurray, Lou Perkowski and Frank Saso.
Do you know where Jack Mills might be ?
Hello to Carol.
Keep in touch.
