What does Walt do for fun?

Hiking around SoCal. My workout regiment is to take long hikes in the mountains of Los Angeles. I love the free exercise, fresh air, views, and photo opportunities.

Organic Gardening  I really enjoy eating home grown vegetables, and since living in Southern California provides such  a great environment to grow a killer garden, I can’t help myself. This year I have a nice crop of tomatoes, carrots, corn, cucumber, snap peas, and watermelon.


Art Galleries and Museums  I love to visit museums and art galleries, especially with my family where I can share my knowledge of art history and love of all forms of art.

Walt on a bikeCycling  as often as possible for fitness and fun. I particularly enjoy cycling in the early morning just after sunrise, and at night (especially during hot days), and anytime with my daughter.

Restoring Photographs  a passion of mine is using my Photoshop, color correction, and digital painting expertise to scan and restore vintage family photographs and share them with my relatives.

Family Tree  I have a great curiosity of history and Genealogy, and continue to research my family history, illustrating it with vintage photos that I have restored.
