    Biography: Raconteur, epicurean and gastronome, occasional roue, gadfly, and just all-around nice guy. I work for the Madison Wisconsin school district as a school psychologist. I have also been fortunate to be on the staff of the local planetarium as an instructor, and have worked with the school district's observatory. For several years I have edited the newsletter of the Madison Astronomical Society. Some of my hobbies are reading, chess, american football, and obviously astronomy. I have lived in Madison, WI for the past 19 years. Additional fascinating biographical details can be found here.

    I'm not a "joiner" so you won't find me on any teams, and I don't set goals. I just like to take pictures and occasionally enter challenges. I''ve been a DPC member for four years and I love this community and the people in it.

    Smartypants is my daughter. She is a careful and thoughtful photographer. Watch out for her work! (you've been warned)

    Regarding comments and voting: I prefer not to receive PMs from challenge participants after I vote and comment on their entry. After the challenge ends, I welcome communication about your photo, and my comment or vote.

    Long before I was an amateur photographer, I was an amateur astronomer.

    Sombre and rich, the skies;
    Great glooms, and starry plains.
    Gently the night wind sighs;
    Else a vast silence reigns.
    --Lionel Pigot Johnson (18671902)
