About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome.

A Marine at Berkeley

I finally got around to assembling an album of some of my Kodak moments at Berkeley.  I was the Marine Officer Instructor with Berkeley's Naval ROTC unit from '84 to '87.  Ah those thrilling days of yesteryear!  Actually, it was the best assignment of my Marine Corps career, officer and enlisted.
      This, of course, was the pre-digital era.  I was a photographic purist in those days, preferring black and white to color.  I had a Nikon F2 and mostly used Tri-X developed in HC-110.
      Please see my Picassa Web album "Berkeley 1984-1987" at http://picasaweb.google.com/palmprints65
A few samples appear below. --EFP
