Its all about the light and shadow. Even color
photographs depend on light and shadow. Shadow detail is a
crucial aspect of many photos, the difference between a
featureless pool of black and some range of tones leading
ultimately to black.
My interest in photography goes back quite a few years.
When I was eight years old living in Queens NYC, my late father
and I used to take pictures on our Sunday outings together. When we moved
to the suburbs, my father built a darkroom in our new house and I spent
teen hours in the dark making black and white prints. Since 1989 I have
been involved in digital imaging. Now of course, everyone has a darkroom
on their desktop as I described in my 1993 BYTE review of Aldus Photostyler.

12/2/2006 I've been a SCUBA diver since 2000. I of course grew up watching "The
Undersea World of Jacques Costeau" and now I, too, am able to go out and explore
though I don't have a personal dive boat (much less one the size/sophistiction
of Calypso :-)
). Having grown more adept at the diving end of things, I have added underwater
photography to my activities beneath the waves by buying a SeaLife DC500
undwrwater digital camera. I took a tutorial in UW photography from a master
are the first set of pictures from the course. I'll be following up with
more and the pictures from the trip to the Turks and Caicos.

Pictures from the Lincoln Square Synagogue End of Year BBQ
Who says you have to be in suburbia to have a bbq? This set of candid
scenes from shows a number of my fellow LSS members and friends cooking
up and eating burgers hot dogs and some chicken too. Nothing quite like
meat broiled over coals and the antics my fellow men go through to get coals
from charcoal not to mention sufficient quantity of hot enough coals to cook
food in under an eternity.
Pictures from the big rally 4/15/02 in Washington
After the rally we, the members
and friends of Lincoln Square
Synagogue waited for stragglers to arrive so we could
get on the bus and go home.
After one bus broke down, most of us on that bus took
taxis to Amtrak at Union Station.
These are pictures of the scene waiting for the bus and then later at Washington D.C. Union Station. Depicted are
LSS'ers and AMIT staff who organized the trip waiting for
the 9:25 pm train home.
