San Jose City Hall


I'm a scientist by training and a photographer by avocation. My scientific work has ranged from human molecular genetics to molecular diagnostics and DNA forensics. My photographic work ranges from professional motorsports photography to landscape, architectural, street, and urbex photography. After using Canon professional gear for a long time, in 2012, I discovered the wonderful Fujifilm X System of cameras and lenses, which continue to be a source of inspiration for me. 

This site will cover a range of photographic topics, both visual and written. Hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to drop me a line.
