I have lots more time to indulge my newly rediscovered passion for photography than I did when I was working full time, although I consider myself only semi-retired because I still work three days a week.
So far I am shooting primarily flowers and insects and am learning more and more about shooting closeups and macro shots. My friend Cindy Dyer, an award-winning photographer and graphic designer, has been teaching and encouraging me and helping me to improve the quality of my photographs.
I look at this blog as a way to share with others the steps of my journey into photography. I expect that there will be detours and side trips during this adventure but I genuinely believe that these aspects of the journey are more important than the destination itself.
