Photographer to lead digital tour of Kansas for LIR group

Larry Hornbaker will offer scenes of Kansas through digital photography at the April 11 Learning in Retirement program at Tabor College.

The program begins at 9:45 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center. Doors will open for registration at 9 a.m.

Hornbaker, from Wichita, enjoys capturing unique angles of scenes from the heartland of Kansas. He will take participants on a tour of the Sunflower State through the lens of his digital camera.

Hornbaker was recommended to LIR by Marci Penner of the Kansas Sampler Foundation.

Hornbaker said he enjoys taking pictures as he travels around the countryside of Kansas with his wife, Karen. His unique travels are documented on his blog at LarryHornbaker.blogspot.com and some of his pictures can be viewed on his website at ke2013.smugbug.com.

Karen also enjoys photography and has made a goal to take a picture of all the courthouses in Kansas.

Hornbaker has taken pictures to document various events in Kansas, such as the state fair. He has visited the two largest cottonwood trees in Kansas, the geographic center of the U.S., near Lebanon, and other interesting Kansas originals.

His photography has been displayed at the Kansas Sampler Festival as well as on the Kansas Sampler Foundation website.

?We enjoy traveling the rural roads of Kansas and other states, and composing photos of landscapes, architecture, bridges, trains, plants, cemeteries and the like. We ?Dare to do Dirt? regularly,? he said.

Learning in Retirement meets regularly through the spring semester. Fees are $4 per session or $15 per semester ($29 per couple) payable at the door. Registration allows for optional lunch at discount in the cafeteria after the session.
