The purchase of my first digital camera awakend a passion that had been dormant for way too many years. I now faced a learning curve for the camera and computer software, so I started reading as much as I could in books and on the internet with my best teacher being practice.
A job loss in 2004 placed me on a new path and after 27 years as a engineer I was ready to move on. I continued to pursue the joy of photography and added some travel, which included some touring on a BMW1150RT motorcycle. At the age of 57 I began working as a flight attendant and now live/work a nomadic life of travel and my camera goes along with me. My work schedule allows me to have 10-15 days off a month to pursue photography. So life is good.
I would like this blog to present my vision of this beautiful world with a camera and with my words. My photography is constantly evolving, hopefully for the better. A blog is another path to view the world, to discover more about myself and the world around me, and to bring joy. I would love to post an image everyday but realistically know that may be impossible. I’ll post as often as possible as well as visit other Photoblogs. I also want to experiment with writing, share what I can about what I’m learning, and point others in new directions.
I hope you enjoy all that you see and read. Please feel free to leave comments and critiques on my images and writings. I need them.
Oh, and if you’re interested in what equipment I use then go to this link and see what’s in my toolbox. Pretty simple stuff.
