She has come to visit me a few times while I’ve been seated on my porch, drinking my morning coffee. She likes to stalk the robins and cardinals, but I’ve never seen her catch one. She seems a bit perplexed by the hummingbirds when they hover around the feeders. She gets upset and struts away when I don’t open the screen door to let her in my house. One of these days, though, we’ll be friends and she will tell me her secret cat name.

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.
