Welcome to the photography section of the Stacy House website.

As you will see, the site has many diverse sections. Each section covers a different aspect of my life after 'retirement'! This section contains information and samples of my photography.


PhotoNotes

The 2003 display of my photography at the Ocean Coffee Roasters has led to a new venture. I produced a line of note cards that I call 'PhotoNotes'. These cards feature my photos of popular Newport scenes and matching envelopes. The first few have to do with the OCNRR Railroad, Trinity Church, the Gulls at Cardines Field, the Commissioning of the USS Chafee [DDG 90], and the local fishing fleet.

A wise man: "It is a wise person who recognizes what he can and cannot do; and then maximizes his contributions and achievements within the domain of the achievable.
In the Arena: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...' Theodore Roosevelt as quoted by Joe Paolino.
