Gary Bonawitz and his wife Sharon, of 40 years, are lifelong residents of the Manhattan Kansas area. Gary notes that as they have grown older they have also grown more aware and fond of the beauty of their "home" state. They enjoy photography as a hobby and feel that KANSAS! magazine does a great job of portraying the diversity found here. They are proud to share their photos with them for others to enjoy; aptly noting, "Photography is a lot like the state of Kansas, there is a lot to learn and the more you look the more you will find."
