“My Grandfather, Oscar Berg, was a passionate photographer, and sparked my interest in photography when I was a boy. He would show me all his Kodachrome, and Extachrome slides, from his travels; and to drop a slide into the the small hand viewer, and see the world one beautiful image at time, was a magical experience. From my early teens, I was always taking pictures of everything: from flowers to barns, and the idea of looking at things in new ways (new, at least to a teenager), was a thrilling experience– that continues to be fun.
Some of these pictures are from a month long trip I took in Europe. Many of them were taken in Bosnia, and Budapest. Never having been to Europe, it was a wonderfully new experience.
I have always loved taking botanical pictures, and have learned to appreciate the beauty, and good fortune, of living in Tucson where we have the Tucson Botanical Garden, Tohono Chul Park, and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, to visit.”
