I took up photography several years ago after my divorce and as a way to have something to do on the weekends. Then I put my camera away for awhile. Now I have a job that splits my time between the east and west coasts, so my camera is my friend again. I own a Nikon D-40. I love to travel anywhere there are people and activities and see what I can find with the lense. I like to keep my photography simple. But I also want to take my photos to the next level.
