Ex-soldier, sailor, naval translator/lexicographer and executive in government & defence sectors. I also taught myself how to develop film and make prints in my studio apartment bathroom in the mid-70’s while I was in the navy. Never wanted to do it professionally, but I've been a guy with camera ever since... minus the expensive gear. I think serious photography is boring both to do and to look at, so I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Unfortunately, I started developing a rare type of chronic kidney disease when I was in my mid-20's. It eventually became full-blown renal failure in my 40's, after which I spent four years on hemodialysis until I finally received a kidney transplant from the waiting list. It's still working well at this writing.
