About me:

I worked as an R&D chemist doing color design and pigmentation of OEM exterior automotive finishes during most of a 40 year career with DuPont. Although I retired in July 2004, I still participate in a local professional color society and lecture at local university color courses. I shoot primarily with Pentax, Leica, and Fujifilm digital cameras.

What began as an attempt to acquire a few used primes to use with my Pentax cameras has turned into a major case of collector's mania and I’ve accumulated an extensive collection of camera bodies and lenses. My full list of photo equipment is at: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/34065253/Camera%20Equipment%20Profile.doc
