i love photography. everything about it. i love taking photos and editing them. photography is my bliss. i am not a professional, though. i consider myself a hobbyist. i love photographing nature. i can find something different to photograph every time i go out. my problem is that i have a day job so i don't get to go out as often as i'd like. i don't consider myself technically accurate. by that i mean i don't follow the 'rules'. i just find something i like and i photograph it. i learn as i go. i read a ton of articles. i have seen myself improve as time has gone by. i've had a camera for as long as i can remember. and at 53, that's a long time! i hope to learn more in the future and get inspiration from this site. i look forward to seeing everyone's work!
