Welcome to Marcmandy Central. This is the hub from which you can find my various projects. It is here that I will highlight my latest interests and work.
Allow me to preface this by stating that I am a survivor. At the end of 2010, I was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer. Nine months later, after a round of chemotherapy, some incredibly major surgery, and then another round of chemo, I began a long, slow return to the world of the living. This entailed reacquiring the desire to eat; the ability to perform simple functions like climbing a flight of stairs; and rebuilding my stamina to the point of functionality with the final effect of bringing myself back into life. None of this would have been possible without the incredible support of my wife Cheryl, my son Devin, my mom, and the many friends and family members who were there for me in my time of need!
Along the way I've learned how to design web sites and how to effectively use the Adobe suite of software. I've also learned a great deal about myself and those who surround me, as well as how I will live the rest of my life (however short or long).
That being said, on the occasion of my 63rd birthday earlier this year, I received a gift from my young mom of a Nikon Df camera. It has some amazing features, but the biggest one is it's ISO rating (ASA) of up to 10,000! I decided to take a 2-day seminar that was conveniently being offered by The Nikonians Academy about mastering the controls of the camera. The camera and the discoveries from the course have changed my entire approach to photography and opened up many new possibilities. This site is going to highlight some of these explorations.
