“I often meet people who get a weird look in their eyes as they look at me and ask/state almost incredulously: ‘you're not from around here are you?’ I generally say I'm from Berkeley and that seems to satisfy them.”

“My wife and I are actively working to improve our community. In 1975 I bought a Canon F1, I still use the same Rolleiflex and Canon F1 today. Film was what I could afford, and it has mainly been Ilford FP4 then and now.”

“The photographs in this album are made with a Yashica TL Super and Rolleiflex.”
