Little-Planet view of my backyard and house on a clear day. The image is a composite of 37 images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and Bower 8 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens (ISO 200, 8 mm, f/16, 1/30 sec). The first image is the version processed with the JPG images three years ago. The Little Planet, Tunnel View, and 360 degree Panorama have been newly processed with the raw images (with a much faster and more powerful computer). I like the colors better with the newly processed images. At the time these images were taken, I still had a deck (now a stone patio), and I now have solar panels on the roof.
I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer and world traveler. My interests in photography include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, skyscapes, and seascapes. I have traveled to over 50 countries over the last 10 years, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on a home renovation project and expanding my wildflower garden/meadow.
