About Me

Like many budding photographers, I started when my parents gave me a Kodak Instamatic. at 10 years of age. I took pictures of everything, but mostly of my friends and my cat. Like every young photographer with a film camera, I depended on my parents to develop the film. I still have all of those prints, but sadly not the negatives.Then I bought my own 110 camera. Remember those? The tiniest negatives, and I do have some of those after all these years, but I cannot scan them like the 35mm negatives. Arghh!

Finally when I was 18 I purchased my own 35mm Rollei. Was I excited. Now I had to learn how to use a “real” camera. Mostly my lessons were from trial and error or pointers from fellow photographers. I soon graduated to another camera, the Minolta, and then to the Nikon 2002 and continued with film 35mm until 2004, taking photos of just about anything and everything, especially when I traveled. Landscapes, nature, historic sites, and wildlife being my favorite shots. And cats too, of course.

In 2004, I finally took the plunge into digital photography, but with a point and shoot. In those “early” days of digital, cameras were expensive and DSLRs were not yet developed well. But in 2011, I decided I needed more creativity with my photography and took the leap and bought a  Nikon D7000. Now I have a Nikon D7100, and I am also using an old Minolta SRT 101 film 35mm. I am fortunate now to have a community of fellow photographers that love the same thing as I do.  And that’s the best part.

I hope you enjoy viewing my photos on this site and please do leave a comment.
