Wm. O.T. Smith Photos - is really the Bill & Bonnie Show! We both love to experience new (or favorite) places and try to capture them on "film".
Bonnie was “born” to travel, it has always been one of her greatest pleasures.
I had to learn that, but I have always sought “wild” places. Naturalists who wrote about ventures into wilderness areas were my boyhood heros. I backpacked, I hiked up mountains, and for three summers, I canoed in the Canadian wilderness of Quetico Park, where my love for remote places was kindled even further.
Marriage and kids can put these activities on hold, but now Bonnie and I have the freedom to roam to a fair degree. The last four summers our destination has been Alaska which has only increased our desire to see more of this beautiful state and it's wildlife. We also spent five weeks in Europe in 2012. Our travels for 2013 have been to Jordan, Egypt, Israel, and Costa Rica. Business travel takes us to Aspen, Cancun, Hawaii and Scottsdale each year. You'll find photographs from all of these places in the galleries you can select on the menu bar on the left.
Photography has been my hobby since high school and Bonnie has come to enjoy it also. With today’s technology and amazing equipment, photography is more fun than ever! So we will seek the pretty places, the beautiful animals, and we will try to create photographs that will do justice to what we see. We will be posting our photos frequently. We hope that you enjoy them!
