I am an amateur photographer and got started taking photos while working in West Texas. I was always telling my wife and parents about all of the ghost towns and abandoned stuff I would see while out serving my volunteers. My parents bought me a little Olympus camera for Christmas and I started taking photos and emailing them to family. Eventually someone said "wow, you have a good eye, you should really take more photos". So I did. my technique and skill has gotten better over the years and I have upgraded cameras. I like things that I call "Rusty & Crusty". Mostly abandoned cars, houses and stuff.
