Originally, I bought my new digital camera to take pictures of our horses for registration and advertising. Once I saw what the camera could do, I realized what I had been missing all my life; there was suddenly beauty everywhere from large to small. I love the challenge of colors and working with light. I'm facinated by patterns, lines, and textures, and I spend hours working and re-working a photo to crop it just right. I have much to learn yet; however, that's an enormous part of the fun. I really enjoy this web site and looking at others' photographs. I think our pictures are in large part a refelection of who we are and where and how we live our lives.
