Former writer, and mother of four. I've enjoyed photography since high school, where I still remember taking a photo of my sister in a leather jacket, a picture of high heels and lipstick and my sister's senior photos. And developing all but the senior photos. Although I still own an incredibly old Nikon that I picked up at a yard sale for $5 (complete with telephoto and wide angle lens) 35mm SLR, I truly love digital cameras. I started my digital revolution with the Sony FD-88, moved onto the FD-90, the CD-500 and then the F828. I stuck with Sony for the h10 and truly love the versatility of my Sonys, but am starting to play with other cameras as well...I currently own an Olympus SZ-12. No matter the camera, I truly believe that it is one's view and vision that creates the picture. Hopefully, my photographic perspective is unique and is apparent in the photos I take and share on this site.
