Chaco Canyon, New Mexico



by Alan D Fremland, MD

Dr Fremland has been interested in photography from his early teens, when he got a box camera and a few darkroom supplies. It has been his hobby ever since. This photograph, entitled "Snowbound," was taken from the window of his boyhood home, in St Paul, MN, with a Rolleicord camera he purchased with money earned from shoveling sidewalks. His subjects have varied over the years and include travel photography, landscapes from afar and close up, people, and professional topics in his work. Dr Fremland has recently been exploring the use of his computer, scanner, and printer instead of a darkroom to produce prints.

Dr Fremland was a Radiologist with SCPMG in San Diego for 22 years.

Upon retiring, he and his wife have traveled, for the past ten years, mostly by RV,and resettled in the Hill Country of South Texas, outside of San Antonio.
