    1. Hi Two Wanderers:

      Thank you for your nice comments. Will include more portraits shots in the future. We love traditional family values, the way it used to be during the “old days”.

      Best Regards,


  1. Hi Ann and Barbara:

    Thank you for your compliments. I’m glad you liked the pictures of my wife and her young relatives. Monochrome pictures add drama to the family story.



  2. They’re delightful photos, and they do have that old-fashioned feel. I have very, very few color photos from my childhood and youth. Maybe only a half-dozen, and the oldest are hand-tinted rather than being any sort of color film — since it hadn’t yet come into use when I was a kid!

    1. Morning Linda:

      Usually I use color in my pictures. But now and then, I switch to monochrome in an effort to add drama to the story. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

      We enjoy taking pictures of the “Twisters” and watch them grow. In a blink of an eye, they are teenagers so different from the time we used to hold them in our arms. Abdiel is almost a young man now, and so is Karol. Now we only have Paola and Dana to play with. And play we do as the pictures show.

      All these pictures will help us remember when they were little, innocent and pure; just like angels descended from heavens.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, Linda.

      Best Regards,
