If you visit me, I probably won't ask if you want to see my stamp collection. I'll just assume you want to see it! But I might ask a different question: Would you like to see some of my black-and-white photos? I hope you'll say "Yes!"

I started taking pictures, developing the film, and making enlargements when I was about 17. Photography has played an important role in my life, right up to the present day. A couple of years ago, pre-pandemic, I decided to assemble a slide show of my favourite black-and-white photographs. I've now uploaded the slide show to my web site. It includes the very first photo I ever took; photos of scenery around my home town, Silver City, New Mexico; photos from my tour of duty in Japan with the U.S. Navy; lots of airplane photos; an old gas station; storm clouds; a classic train crew dining car, and an art deco movie theatre in Vanderhoof, BC. I hope you'll take a look. I hope you'll like what you see!

Nice. I have not thought about Kodak film or darkrooms in a long time. Pretty soon kids won't know what a darkroom is!

Lovely camera work, I very much agree with the judges for the City of Vancouver photo contest regarding your picture outside the building at night! It is mesmerizing.

Great photos, Bob!

My first camera was a Kodak Brownie, but I was never a photographer like you! Great to have all the info associated with the photos too.

The photo of the T-33's taxiing for take off reminded me of a job I had to do. Engineers were worried that the jet blast of the C-17's would send cars flying off the road at the Mountain View airport in Prince Edward County. So there I was, standing in the ditch beside the highway behind a C-17 getting ready for take off, with a handheld anemometer. The C-17 started up, I braced for the worst - but nothing! They saved a few bucks by not building that jet blast wall.
