I have worked as a newspaper photographer, wedding photographer and sold to magazines. Since 2005 I am retired and shoot what I want and that is the street. Most of the shots are from Charlotte, but I add street shots from other cities that I visit.
107 imagesI shot for publication for many years, but now I am retired and do this just because I love to. I shot with B&W film for years, and I really see better in B&W than I do in color.
34 imagesWhen I see an interesting face, I often ask if I could take a photo for this gallery. I call it Charlotte Smiles, but there are a few from other places other than Charlotte
43 imagesNODA is a Charlotte Art District. I hope that it keeps its current style, but Charlotte is the second fastest growing city in the USA. and so progress is coming to NODA and some of the charm is going away.
40 imagesThe Charlotte Pride Festival has become one of the largest gatherings in Charlotte. The Parade held on Sunday is the largest parade held in Charlotte (I am in Church so I miss that each year). There were a few women who were topless, but I didn't show that as I do not know how old they are and they have to be over 18 for me to display them.
