I have been fascinated with photography since childhood. I once used a whole roll of film on a neighbor's yard which I thought was beautiful. My mother was furious with me but she continued to buy me film. I got my first SLR in 1976 and my first digital camera in 2000. Since finding BetterPhoto almost a year ago, I feel that my photography skills have improved greatly. I love viewing the work of others and have learned a great deal from some of the very talented and artistic members on this site. I prefer to shoot non moving subjects and especially love to photograph water, sky and other elements of nature such as sunrises and sunsets. Also love to photograph pretty old churches and rural buildings. Whenever possible I like to combine the beautiful sky with the wonderful buildings.
