Why Catalina Island?

 

 

 

Why  Catalina Island?

Updated 6/04/11

 

I chose Catalina Island for my first venture into photographic expression for a variety of reasons.  Not only did I grow up there and live there for 20 years, but it was 75 square miles of unspoiled California where I learned to appreciate wide open spaces, natural beauty and observe nature at work. It is also where I was inspired to develop and practice landscape and scenic photography. In addition, I love the place and I know the place.  Someday I'll publish my maxims of successful scenic/landscape photography, of which the previous sentence contains two.  Avalon is the small town on Catalina, and it is where I learned to appreciate the strong social connections that small towns offer in life.
