I live in Central Illinois with my Border Collie Jill, semi-wild cat Janie, and four horses. I have three grown daughters who live nearby with their families,including five grandchildren.
My interest in photography has been growing since I retired as a database analyst from a power company in 2000. I purchased my first DSLR in September 2008 and joined a local camera club. I currently shoot with a Canon 60D. I love animals and nature and most of my photos reflect that. My other interests are include camping and trail riding, training my dog in agility, and travel.
I love the fact that you can never learn all there is to know about photography - it is a livelong process of learning new techniques and skills and developing your personal vision.
