I have spent two months out of the past three years photographing Route 66. I am working on a coffee-table style fine-art photography book entitled: Colors of the Past, Photographs Along Route 66.

I have a growing collection of multi-media slide shows on Route 66, Mexico, Flower Abtracts, Birds of San Diego, Professional Tennis, New Orleans, China, and Puerto Rico. Each is a celebration of color and music. I have presented these shows to dozens of photography clubs, service organizations and senior groups.

I have a lecture entitled The ABC's of Dynamic Photography, which I have given to photography clubs, and plan to turn into an instructional book.
