I guess I’ve been a photographer most of my life,
dating back to my teens. Over the years I have photographed everything
from celebrities to generals, mountain tops to table tops, - - and flowers
. . .
I “did time” in the U.S. Air Force for over 20
years, visiting and photographing most of the beautiful cities of the world.
While stationed in Germany I conducted evening
photography classes for dependents, sponsored by the University of Maryland.
I have received numerous awards, trophies and
citations throughout the years for my prize winning pictures.
I am a transplanted cheese head from Wisconsin,
having (now) lived in the beautiful state of California for several decades.
My late wife hailed from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. I have been blessed
with two beautiful children, Dianne and Steve, - and with three loving
grandchildren, Shane, Michelle and April, all the objects of my affection!
My life has been fulfilling. I am grateful,
- have no regrets. I now live in the beautiful city of Santa Rosa,
California and focus on my flowers (play on words ?), - hence, - Marty’s
flowers . . .
All of my flower pix are of flowers I personally
have planted in my back yard, -nurtured, -given much T.L.C. - & harvested,
- & blessed! I hope you enjoy my flower pictures. Help yourself
me know what you think. Please sign my guestbook below..
Rest In Peace my beautiful Father! Mark Deckert - 7/18/1919 - 12/12/2003. Your loving Son Steve
