I have been into photography for several years. I received a Canon AE1 camera from a friend in 1981. I used it exclusively until 2005 when I took the leap and purchased a Digital Rebel. I have since upgraded to a Canon 60D.
AT LAST--I am doing my photography again! I found that macro work, along with landscape/nature work is my favorite. My nature is to look at myself, life and the world closely so it is no surprise that macro became a favorite. I believe that the universe is contained in every drop of rain and each grain of sand and I'm off on a journey with my camera to prove it!
I am an avid gardener inside and out. I have two organic perennial gardens two "square foot" vegetable gardens and I grow orchids.
One of my favorite quotes: "If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person's story enough suffering and sorrow there to disarm all hostilities". Longfellow
