I am a retired high school English teacher and until recently served as a supervisor of student teachers at Youngstown State University. I live in Mineral Ridge, Ohio, which is in the northeast corner of the state. My wife of 53 years, Monnie, also has a photo gallery on zenfolio which I encourage you to visit. We have two children, four grandchildren, and at least a dozen cameras between us.
My primary camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi although I carry a Canon Powershot G12,a Canon PowerShot SX120 and/or a Canon EOS-M as backups. For a number of years, my hobby has been photographing lighthouses, and as of now, I've photographed 186 lights, at least one on each of the Great Lakes plus numerous Atlantic coast lights from Maine to North Carolina.
So many lighthouses; so little time!!!

The Rockport album covers the beauty of the Rockport in a single picture. I think it is your talent that makes these nature sculptures more beautiful. Your eyes are like the camera lens. And I believe you are such a fantastic photographer. :::: http://www.coolbulbs.com :::

Jack,
Love the site. You have some really great photos here. It's a shame we live so far apart. I think you and I could have a blast going off on a photo shoot some where. If your ever in Virginia let me know we can go up to Chincoteague and visit the Seahawk sometime.
