About six years ago I became interested in photography. I went on a photo shoot outing with the Redlands Camera Club with my good friend, Marty. Marty loaned me (and later sold me) my first (and only} digital super-duper Canon 50D SLR with telephoto lens. I was hooked.
I have continued to go on various photo safaris with Marty, another good friend, Dave, and on my own. I have taken my lens to Santa Fe, Arizona, Santa Barbara, Joshua Tree, several botanical parks, museums and art fairs and more. I even took a digital camera to Italy last year and Michigan and more. It is amazing what you see when you look at the world with an eye toward photographing it.
I have become more aware of light and color, the subtle changes in each at various times of day. I love to capture random images, like those captured recently above. I like architectural details of buildings. Alleys intrigue. And people...people just being people on the street.
I have also occasionally shared my work in some local galleries and at a few local art shows. To my amazement, I have actually sold some of my images to appreciative "patrons". That is a very nice feeling of affirmation and pride.
This is why I am so thankful to have discovered and pursued this fun hobby. I try to take a camera everywhere, because, as any photographer type will tell you, you never know when you might snap!
