Networking the world: My work passion for over three decades has been the data network world--and now everything is data, including voice, video, and presence. For far longer I've been an avid photographer, starting with an old 620 folder of my father's, migrating to his Argus C3 rangefinder, and eventually getting my own Asahi Pentax Spotmatic II while in the US Navy (1974). That camera kit was stolen during a home burglary in 1987, so I replaced it with a Nikon N2020. The N2020 was retired in 2000 in favor of a Nikon F5. In 1999 I began shooting digital, and today I enjoy both digital and analog photography.
