My name is Roland Allen. I'm a Californian with a couple of cameras and a few thoughts. I live in Orange County, which is in southern California, halfway in between Los Angeles and San Diego.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. ~Ansel Adams
I've spent my life in "the Academy" - having been a college and university admissions officer at Westmont College, Colby College, MIT and Stanford University; and as director of college counseling at several well regarded independent schools.
I care deeply about people, their God-given dignity and their innate human rights.
Your beliefs will be the light by which you see, but they will not be what you see and they will not be a substitute for seeing.
