What a Cute Baby!
Ready to take on the world.
All Dressed Up to Have My Picture Taken!
Check out the curls and the fancy duds. I think I like my birthday suit photo better.

1940 High School Graduation Photo
Sporting my super wavy hair and perhaps a sense of maturity beyond my years.
The Happy High School Kid
...and quite in fashion with the double breasted jacket with very wide lapels.
Then I Joined the Army
Beginning My Career as a Commercial Artist
After the Army, I went to art school, graduated, and started out on my own.
In the Business World.
This was taken c. 1960, when I was the Publications Manager for an Engineering Firm.
My Favorite Picture of Myself
Taken for corporate publicity when I was the Advertising and Sales Promotion Manager for a large Paper Company.
Aging Like Fine Wine?
How quickly time flies, as suddenly I'm in my eighties.
Sporting a Hard Hat
While doing a corporate advertising project, I got to climb a "digester" that turns paper chips into paper pulp, at a paper plant in Wickliffe, KY.
My First Home
I was born upstairs in my grandma's house, at 218 Linden Avenue, in Highlands, New Jersey. At 2 1/2 we moved nearby to 228 Linden Ave.
My stint in the Army was an important time in my life. I was away from home for the first time, and I really grew up significantly. I was on my own, and I did well. The lifestyle was often tough and demanding, but it was a real boost in my personal development. Here I am with my horse, Coltie.
I was statioined at Camp Hale, in the mountains of Colorado.
Supplies and provisions were transported by mule teams, which were well adapted to cope with the Rocky Mountain terrain and climate.
I took this picture of my friend, Luke Passage, driving a jeep through the deep snow in the Rockies - wheeee! I remember a line of Luke's that really stuck with me: - "An evil minds is a constant companion."
While in the Army, I learned to love the scenery of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. This is one of my favorite photos I took during that time, from the hills overlooking Camp Hale.
Still Going and Growing
On my 90th Birthday.
With my son, Jeff, and my favorite dog, Tony.
My son Jeff's partner, and my good friend, Al.
I became a grandfather for the first time a week before my 90th birthday, with the birth of my grandson, Kurosh S. Donnelly.
My grandson is a happy baby.
