When I look at my gallery I sometimes wonder if people think..."Hey, this guy can't be in all these different places he must be pulling stock shots and calling them his own". I know that this happens because I posted a few images on line as "Public Domain" just for fun and within a day found someone "selling" them as his own "Fine Art"....some people!
Anyway the reason for the wide selection of subject mater is this.... 
  For several lucky years I enjoyed a job that had me traveling around the country. I spent a lot of time in Florida, Texas, Arizona, etc... along with that job, I managed to build up a lot of hotel points and airline miles. My wife and I took advantage of those "Perks" and did a lot of traveling for several years.
  So, yes, there were stretches where I would be in Ft. Lauderdale one week and San Antonio the next. Then we might take a trip to the Grand Canyon or a cruise to the islands.... Those were great years brought to a screeching halt by the folks at Goldman-Sachs, Chase, Bank of America and other "Too Big To Fail" financial Institutions. Though we didn't get hit as hard as many, many other people, it did get me downsized . I was lucky to hang in and spend a year in Houston (giving me a chance to explore Texas and the Gulf Coast) taking a lot of pictures before returning to New Jersey.
  Back in the Garden State, I spent a lot of time shooting along the coast and in the Pines of South Jersey and the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Additionally I would just ride around finding things to shoot at flea markets, playgrounds, abandon buildings, etc...I also enjoyed working on Macro water drops on rainy days..Though I really haven't posted many of those.
  Also, since becoming a deviant I have been posting a lot of older stuff in addition to the new.

  So, they are all mine.. I also enjoy manipulating my own work in photoshop i.e.: Out of Bounds, etc..
