Thank you for selecting two of my photographs for your Special Merit and Special Recognition categories. Your selections are an affirmation of my attempts to become an effective photographer.
I am an experimental psychologist by training and have spent my professional career working as a college professor and now as a college administrator.
Several years ago I rekindled my love of photography and have allowed this avocation to consume a notable portion of my time. The rewards are many with the most fundamental being the quest for finding new ways of expressing myself through the medium.
Looking at winning pictures you selected has given me additional inspiration. With best wishes.
