Elk Mountains near Aspen Colorado

I left college knowing a few things: I didn’t want to live in Schenectady or Cincinnati and I still was fascinated by photography and technology and loved experimentation. First stop was Aspen, Colorado. I worked in restaurants at night and explored the mountains and skied and hiked and bicycled by day. I took lots of landscape photographs with a medium format camera in hard to reach locations. I tried to be a ski and sports photographer . But I missed working and experimenting in the darkroom so I added a small room on the back of my house as a darkroom and was back in the dark.
