This Superstition exhibit was never planned. It evolved as a byproduct of my many enjoyable excursions into the Superstition Wilderness. Throughout these trips I always carried a camera. In 1993 I was reviewing some prints and came to the realization that I had enough material to present an exhibit. It was at this time that I aggressively started printing these images.
The exhibit, for many years, was permanently on display in the Blue Mule Gallery. The gallery closed December 2011 and the exhibit was removed.
The prints in the exhibit are not for sale as I do not want to break up the group. Also, some of these may serve as future guide prints.
My photography is a hobby and I am trying to keep it that way. I will be spending more time with this hobby in the future as I decided to retire from my full time job at Motorola / Freescale, May 6, 2004. Some of my reasons for early retirement include...
Currently I have a number of projects that require my attention, but check back to this website for future updates.
- Motorola dumped (or in their words 'spun off') its Semiconductor Products Sector, which became Freescale Semiconductor. Demolition of the old Motorola Semiconductor Products Sector facility in Mesa, Arizona can be seen here: Bye - Bye chip factory.
- No one could directly or honestly answer my questions about my retirement options since Freescale was observing what they referred to as “the quiet period.” This fear and uncertainty clearly helped me make my decision to leave Motorola prior to the initial public offering, since it was not clear to me whether I would lose my medical benefit coverages or other benefits if I didn't retire at this time.
- A constant flow of bad administrative decisions based more on greed and petty political squabbles than sound business goals.
- The continuing trend of the CEO and his top executives' incomes to increase while reducing the employees' benefits.
- Future pension growth was terminated for everyone, including loyal, long time employees despite reassurances of "the highest business ethics, uncompromising integrity and constant respect for people."
- Years of layoffs, downsizing and streamlining resulted in too few people to do too much work. As a result, I found myself relegated to primarily performing gopher work for others.
- Conditions degenerated to the point where work was no longer satisfying or fun.
- Sorry, no thanks…. "No hope of these problems ever being addressed, let alone resolved”
