I absolutely enjoy photography as long as I’m the one behind the lens. I have more patience and less fear if my camera is in my hand. I love trying and learning new things and even if no one else ever sees what I photograph and most of it lives on my hard drive I do it for me- of course, it’s always nice when someone else enjoys seeing what I saw the need to capture.
I shoot almost everything but people. Animals and macro close-up photography are probably my favorites.
I see God’s beauty all around me.
It’s not about the camera, which is a good thing because I don’t even own an DSLR. I have a bridge Panasonic that I love and the next model is what’s next on my wish list. Not that I don’t try to win an SLR, and photography software because I do, but it’s not what drives me. I enjoy going out with other photographers, and I especially like hiking to waterfalls.
As far back as I can remember I was always the one with a camera. Remember back when you had to roll the film forward and wait weeks to get your 24 pictures back? When I was younger I used to be able to draw- those days have been replaced with the camera. I joined a local camera club after my interest had increased quite a bit. On a trip to Grandfather Mountain, the battery door on my Canon point and shoot broke. I was so upset.
Then I started my camera search and my hobby took off.
I think creative people see the world just a little bit differently and I plan to share some of my favs on here.

I also like OnOne and Nik.
