Liberate Your Art
Photographer, Reader, Writer, Thinker, Dreamer
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.

I read Ailsa’s travel theme for this week on Friday, but didn’t have time to put a post together. However, it spurned an ear worm. Ah, thanks? But before I give you the pop melody I couldn’t get out … Continue reading
Well, nobody, apparently, is interested. So much for that. It was lots of fun for the first round and I thought that after having about 40 people interested last time, that I would have SOME takers this time. … Continue reading
