I adopted photography as a hobby at age 13 and have been pursuing it ever since. I have travelled in forty-five or so nations and keep adding to the list. On my travels, I usually make it a practice to visit famous cemeteries and photograph them if time allows. Pere Lachaise (Paris), Recoleta (Buenos Aires), and Highgate (London) are particular favorites. I am an academic by earlier training, a lawyer by profession, and an occasional writer by avocation. Education: Ph.D., Tulane University (Political Science; Graduate School Fellow); J.D., University of Tennessee College of Law; member, Tennessee Law Review. Interests: photography, philosophy (esp. Plato, Hegel, Marx, Cicero, and M. Aurelius), cinema, politics, ancient history, amateur archaeology, travel, music (Bach fugues, pipe organ generally, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Prokofiev, jazz, swing, New Orleans R&B/funk, Cajun, grand opera, Woody Guthrie, and Gilbert & Sullivan--I am among the most dedicated of Savoyards), literature, reading and, from time to time, scribbling. Favorite cities: Paris (the city of my eternal dream), endlessly charming Vienna, Venice, New Orleans, Istanbul, Rome, Prague, Buenos Aires, Marrakech, Fez, Toronto, San Francisco. Favorite nations for travel: Italy, Turkey, France.

Thank You! Shane, Thank you for your kind words. Ataturk was a soldier's solder, and not many soldiers make the transition from Warrior to Statesman. I could never have made that transition. What a remarkable man he must have been. It would have been a wonderful thing to have met him, saluted him or shook his hand. Others that I would have treasured such an experience with would have been Rommel, Washington, Pershing, Robert E. Lee, Osceola, Omar Bradley......Ataturk would have been in mighty company.
