I am a retired professor and Associate Dean of Engineering at the University of Arkansas. My PhD is from Purdue Univ
ersity and I am a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Arkansas. My passion is to travel and take photographs. I have visited 50 countries (and counting) and I have over 60,000 photographs in my Lightroom database. I have, additionally, years of photographs (slide and print) that I am actively scanning and adding to my database.
My wife and I travel independently, often off the beaten track. Our travels sometimes involve some unusual forms of transportation such as a mail boat or on the top of ore in the back of a giant dump truck hauling silver ore. During these travels we often encounter odd, funny, painful and sometimes tragic events as well as some of the world's greatest scenery. Documenting these encounters as well as displaying beautiful and interesting sites is my goal for this web site.
