Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. Abstract photography and texture work also interest me. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera, and a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
