Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired US Navy Combat Photographer. Now a full-time nomadic, RV based, travel and wildlife photographer and writer.

Location independent, I go where the photography takes me. Looking for interesting and beautiful places, I set up semi-permanent residence, meet the people, see the sites, and document my adventures through the camera lens. Scuba diving and sailing are also high on my list when near the ocean.

Some time is spent at places like National Parks and Monuments, but those places are usually crowded and overly photographed. I prefer lesser known places equally beautiful and interesting. So that’s my quest. Finding, photographing and journaling about obscure places people would be interested in reading about.

Glad to be a haven from a storm

We were happy to welcome Wes back after a tumultuous day he experienced in OK. His dog felt like he had come home again and is now on the mend and getting back to normal. We enjoyed getting better acquainted with this Boondockers Welcome guest and wish him good photo hunting grounds as he travels.

Great Guest! Great Photographer!

We enjoyed meeting this Boondockers Welcome guest and getting acquainted with him. He was meeting a friend here and we enjoyed getting acquainted with her also. Even their two dogs got along well and enjoyed the freedom of chasing squirrels and rabbits. We wish them the best and Godspeed on their journey.
