I'm not really to good at this. I have had a love for photography since I was in the 7th grade. I remember asking my dad for a camera for my birthday. I got a camera and it didn't take long to loose interest. It wasn't until my bother came home a few tme's on leave in the Marine's some year's later and seeing the photo's that he had been taking that the the photo bug hit again. My first camera was a Nikon F3 that I traded my 79 Chevy Silverado.
I was doing mostly family and a few friend's.
I soon moved to another city and because of new employment and the type job I simply had no time. Now another 10 yrs later I picked up my F3 and started clicking again. My son was playing football and baseball and I had started coaching girl's fastpitch softball. I started taken my camera every time and everywhere there was a game.
I got hurt this year in April and couldn't work so I thought I would try and get a lot more serious with what I truely enjoy. I got my first Digital, a Nikon D100. Started doing picture's of friend's kid's in Pop Warner and have been taking picture's every chance I get..
I have a long way to go but the thought of taking a picture and watching people's face's light up make's me feel really good inside.
Freezing time and preserving wonderful memories. That's just to cool
Now these day's, I hardly ever leave home without a camera. One of the most wonderful thing that I have gotten from the love of photography, is that now, I share it with my son.
