Robert Dunkle Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement My passion is taking pictures. All through my youth and up to this point in my life pictures and the feeling and emotion they can bring forth has been a fascination. I travel a lot and prefer the back roads of our great country where images and memories of the past abound. Before my wife passed away we spent a lot of time photographing everything we saw. She was the flower photographer and I took shots of barns and old cars. My flower album is for her. Lilies and roses were her love and a great family story about rebirth and continuation centers around a rose. Enjoy these albums and feel free to leave a comment. I hope to generate a stream of revenue that can leave me more free time to spend with the family and doing what I was born to do. Being a Dad to my kids.
