Life is like a camera……Focus on what’s important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives, And if things don’t work out, Take another shot 🙂
Whether I’m traveling to some unique place like Canyonlands National Park or visiting family members in the Midwest, I always keep my camera(s) close at hand. I’ve had an interest in photography since my teenage years and have maintained photo albums and scrapbooks long before “scrapping” became popular.
Digital photography has allowed me to explore my hobby without constraints; no need to purchase film or pay for developing. No longer waiting and wondering if a photo will turn out. I’ve never taken a class. I’m still a beginner in the editing department using Picasa…. JPEG.
Most important to me are the memories my photographs capture. My photos won’t ever hang in a gallery but they will and do hang in my children’s homes. That makes me happy. My son and daughter also eagerly share in the housing of my dozens of scrapbooks.
It’s usually around the holidays that the photo albums come out, stories are told, and the laughs begin. So for me, it’s not just about the photograph itself….it’s about the journey and memories created.
And then there’s the wildlife….not always easy to capture, but oh so fun.
I just can’t seem to get enough of all the beautiful landscapes and vistas…..
I love beautiful architecture.
And a few more other shots just for fun.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
