Greetings and welcome to my little collection of photographs. Feel free to look around at photos of family, friends, vacations, occasions, cats and dogs, Coast Guard stuff and of course, flying machines of all descriptions. This collection will be a work in progress as long as I can hold a camera.

And please check out the newest section of this site, Bob's Blog. There, I'll comment on the photos, technique, equipment or whatever else is on my mind.

If you want to download any of the photos in full resolution and without a watermark, just email me for the password or leave a request in the Guestbook. Family members and friends, feel free to drop me a line or give me a call and I'll hook you up.

You may purchase prints of any of the images by adding them to your shopping cart, then selecting the desired size and finish at check out.

So, what do you think? If you have any comments, please send an email to Bob@rshafer.net or leave a mesage in the Guestbook.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you find something that you enjoy.
