I’ve added a new page—Photo Gallery.
My father was an avid amateur photographer. Like father, like daughter. Dad even did his own black and white developing.
Dad was like a squirrel—anything bright and shiny got dragged into his nest—so I got his hand-me-down cameras as he bought new technology.
I’ve enjoyed taking pictures since I was a kid.
For a long time I felt like I was seeing our trips through the lens of a camera, always going for that best shot. I thought maybe I should stop that and enjoy the trip more. The solution was to buy a happy snapper camera. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that camera, but I quickly ran up against the limits of its creativity. Back to the digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera. I rediscovered that seeing a trip through the lens of a camera was a big part of how I enjoyed the trip!
How does my photography pertain to my writing?
Places I’ve been, experiences I’ve had, people I’ve known—grind it all together—and out comes a story.
Hope you enjoy the photos. I enjoyed taking them.
