Now retired from the Automotive industry, I have renewed my interest in Photography, a Hobby that was shared by my wife Jan & daughter Cheri when we lived in California in the late 70's and early 80's, since retirement Cheri has urged me to pick up a camera again.
Weekly national travel as a National Training Manager left little time for Photography or anything else for that matter. I am truly enjoying the days I spend with Jan, Cheri and my camera.
I take great pleasure in sharing my work with my friends and family, as well as my new found "Photography Friends".
***** MY TREASURED GIFTS*****
I have Two art Works hanging on my wall (among others), one is of an English Pointer and the other of a Tiger.
On the back of the "Pointer" picture you will find written in pencil "Merry Christmas Bobby -- 1948 -- Mrs. Klienberger" The tiger is dated the following year. Also from her.
These two pieces of art have found a place on a wall in my home where ever we lived. Another gift I received from her was a full size cotton 48 star U.S. flag, which we used as a photo back drop not too long ago.
At that age I probably would have been more excited about a toy truck ***** But ***** the toy truck would have been gone a long time ago and I still have and enjoy these treasures!!!!!
The next time you are considering a gift (treasure) for someone special THINK ART !!!!!
