Marshall Bowling is a semi-retired jack-of-all-trades that can be found wandering around the Big Bend area of Texas with a camera, a canteen and a walking stick. I have held a variety of jobs. I didn't plan it that way, it just happened that way. I took opportunities when they presented themselves and I was in need of a job. Following is a list of some of the jobs that I have held:
Senior Systems Analyst
Senior Technical Consultant
Assistant Vice President Data Processing
Independent Insurance Adjuster
Security Officer at Ft. Hood Airfield
Teak Root Furniture Importer
I am probably one of the few people around that can say that they have both run drilling rigs and programmed computers. I have worked in Texas, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota and Tennessee. I have visited 35 states in the U.S., 5 Canadian provinces, Mexico (both coasts) and Belize (by air, car and boat!).
Now days I pick up odd jobs in between taking thousands of photographs of things that interest me, and nearly everything interests me, as can be seen by the photos on this website. I started out taking close-ups of wildflowers and it just got completely out of control after that. I have an obession to know the names of the things that I photograph. That can also be seen on this website. Thus the name: "A photograph and taxonomy website."
I am in the process of redesigning this website so you will notice a couple of different styles of pages as I continue on. I also have hundreds more photographs to sort through and post.
I hope that you enjoy the site and the photos.
Thanks for visiting,
Marshall Dale Bowling
