“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever….it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind ….

I am not a photographer – at least I am not a professional by any means, but I love going for walks in nature with camera in tow, hoping to capture something special. And perhaps the photos I take are not special to anyone else but me and that’s okay. I love taking photos of nature, particularly birds. My photos serve as my memory, helping me relive moments long gone.

When I am out walking with camera in hand I feel a sense of peace and a sense of purpose. Each foray holds the hope that today will be the day I capture the magic of nature, the beauty in a blade of grass, or the wonders of an ever changing sky. Photography helps me pay closer attention to the world around me and appreciate it anew.

  1. I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet
    I never found any fascinating article like
    yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me.
    In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as
    you probably did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before. http://yahoo.net/

    1. You are very kind. I do not call myself a professional; because I am not, but I do enjoy photography. I still have a lot to learn and credit my Canon Rebel with the spectacular results I sometimes get. Thank you for your comment.
