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 took this photograph about six weeks ago, but it wasn’t until this evening that I returned to this set of shots. The challenge this week in Kim Klassen’s Beyond Beyond course was to shoot from above. Ahhhh! … Continue reading
I’m not sure what this is, but it looked like a dandelion to me. Isn’t that pink pretty? Not sure what others would call it, but I wouldn’t consider it a weed — even if it were yellow. Linking up … Continue reading
I love shooting sunsets. I’m never quite satisfied with the images I make, so I keep trying. Since every sunset is different, there is always a reason to keep trying to capture that perfect image. Sunrise, though, is a different … Continue reading
Home again. Home again. Brought home lots of sand in my car, but even more memories, many of them easily recalled by looking through my photo catalog.
