A folio of images dating back to 1979 and made through 1990. As a student of George Krause at the University of Houston, his encouragement of the first image in this folio, “Stormy Houston”, set the tone of this body of work.    This folio was compiled in 1990 out of a literal pile of prints and negatives that were "personal" not created nor intended for publication.  Many images were taken on various vacation trips, many my first time to visit.  This folio reflects the spirit and energy of that first image: melancholy optimism- a fine balance of the joy of living and the change inherent in living life.
