Retired after a 23-year teaching career, Don Truett of Ramona is finally able to pursue his longtime passion for photography full time.
He and his wife Denise, also a retired teacher, have traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad. Photographs from some of these trips are in his show showcased in Ramona Library.
“Whether landscape, nature, abstracts or a different look at everyday objects, Don Truett is interested in all and strives to convey that interest to the viewer,” said Judy Nachazel, Ramona Library’s art liaison. “And his eye-catching photography has won a number of awards, including many first place in shows throughout the county.”
Wanting to present quality artwork to his buyers, Truett noted that he does his own printing on a top-of-the-line printer with archival inks and premium papers.
“Stop by the library to see his photography,” said Nachazel.
