I traveled in Europe for fourteen months in 1949-50. I became an enthusiastic photographer in Limburg, Germany, on January 3, 1950, when I bought my first good camera - a Leica IIIc. I spent two years in Germany serving in the Army. After studying architecture at MIT, I returned to Dallas, where I practiced architecture for thirty years and led a volunteer career working on community goals, neighborhood improvement, and affordable housing. Since retiring from architecture and volunteering in 1995, I have focused on personal photography, working on a backlog of images accumulated since 1950 and adding more. I have benefited from a number of photographic workshops, including Fred Picker's Zone VI in 1984 and a variety of courses at the Santa Fe Workshops.
