Tony Crocker – I Am Coffee Cafe
As most of us pursue jobs and careers, our lives move farther from the natural world. Entertainment technology takes us farther away from it. Early retirement, 18 years ago, has allowed me to spend more time with nature, and use my cameras to record what I see.
My photographic interest began at about age 11, with black & white film, a pre World War 2 Zeiss Ikon camera, and my father's home basement darkroom. The tools have changed, and some of the process has changed, but the beginning and the end goal are the same. We still use a camera to make an initial exposure and then turn that image into a photographic print that best shows what we saw, and want others to see.
I invite you to look at some of my prints of Ontario's native birds, over an excellent cup of coffee, and perhaps lunch or desert, at this local cafe.
