My love affair with photography began when I was in high school. I was fascinated with all types of cameras and the artistic freedom it provided. I had been involved with art since early childhood. My parents both encouraged me sending me to several art classes and seminars. In many cases it was intimidating since I would be the only child in a room of adult artists. No matter, I was doing something I enjoyed. My problem was always that I would get bored with a specific medium. I jumped from charcoal to pencil to ink to paint (both acrylic and oil). I just oculd not seem to find one area that I wanted to focus on. Looking back I think part of my problem was the constant internal struggle I had between my artistic side and my analytical side.
This web site has gone through several metamorphoses. It began quite simply with just a static page but soon additional pages and content were added turning it into a web site rather than a web page. As the number of pages increased so did the time it took to maintain this site. When I first created this I intended it to be just an electronic business card providing information of how people could contact me. Now it was turning into more of a life history; that was something I had not expected nor planned. It became very clear that I needed to find an easier way to maintain this site if it were to survive. A few years passed and I happened to stumble across a content management system that touted its ease of use. I have been in the software business long enough to take these claims with a large grain of salt. Given the situation I found myself in I decided to take a chance and install this software.
Diary of a Diehard Baseball Blog
When the Arizona Diamondbacks were awarded a Major League Baseball franchise on March 9, 1995 I took that as an omen that I was destined to follow this team. After all, what other explanation could there possibly be for the team to be unveiled on my birthday? Two days later in the driving rain I stood downtown at then America West Arena and waited to put $50 down for a season ticket that would not be available for 3 years. They had not even broken ground on a stadium yet and I already had a deposit on season tickets.
