I was trimming weeds in the drainage ditch along side the road this afternoon. As the cutting threads whirled, I wondered what the green leaves were. They looked vaguely familiar. Just as I was getting to the end of the extension cord, I spotted a bit of red. Wild strawberries! There were only 3 that still had berries on them. I’m sure that there had been some tasty treats for the birds the last few days. By the time I got to the house and had grabbed my camera, I had lost 2 of the berries, but there was still something to shoot!

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them.
