I am a freelance photographer, with emphasis on 'free.' I like to shoot special events and Boats and share the pictures with anybody interested. Most of my images are captured around Historic Olde Towne, hence the name. Sometimes I slip down to the seashore for therapy, so you'll be treated with a few beach pictures from time to time.

May you always have a gentle breeze and following seas.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. ---------- Mark Twain
