This portfolio of photographs is the result of a number of study tours I made from 1955 to the present. You are invited to browse the "thumbnail" galleries and expand them to view larger screen-proofs.

F. New Zealand: Includes scenes of the country as well as images of some of the native birds.

G. Birds. As a change of pace from architectural photography, since 1993 my hobby has been photographing birds. For ease of reference, I have divided the bird images into the following categories: Ducks and Ducklike, Nonpasserine, Passerine, Sea Birds, and Wading Birds. Most of the pictures were taken in the San Francisco Bay Area. However, some were taken in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Hawaii, Florida, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, and New Zealand.
