I live on Long Island, NY and have always loved photographing NYC at night. That NYC skyline captures my heart every time. However, I've also had a love affair with coastal california for almost 30 years. Now I have the opportunity to capture, via the digital world of photography, the beauty that has always been within my memories. Photographing is always on my mind even if the camera is not in my hand. I tend to view the world in snapshots, frequently imagining how the shot would look if I could've captured it as it was happening at that moment. Preserving those special moments in life when we get to share a glimpse of pure innocence, goodness, or just the sheer beauty of the world around us. Life really IS worth photographing.

I'm having a ball!!

Bio

I have always loved photographs and admired people who could take great pictures. About 15 yrs ago I asked my husband for a nice camera for Christmas. He bought me a beautiful Nikon N6006 with a macro lens 28mm-200mm zoom. It took me about 7 yrs before I really had the time to use the camera, focusing on all of it's wonderful features. Over the past 8 yrs I have finally been able to devote some time to a hobby I have always wanted to know more about. I actually did read the camera manual many, many times before I could really understand my camera and make the most of it. Now I have had the pleasure of moving on to the digital world of photographs and am loving it even more. I'm still learning though. I think this is a great site and I am so eager to network with the wonderful people here and try to learn as much as I can about a hobby I absolutely adore. Take care.
