Through my lens
My first taste of photography was back in 1979 as I worked towards a degree in graphics technology. In those days, there was no digital, just film. Watching the images appear in the chemical bath was such an exciting process. I fell in love with the experience. Soon after my college days, I chose a different path and found expressing my creativity through floral artistry very rewarding. I worked in that field for 25 years and loved every moment of it. The focus of flowers, not film, unfortunately pulled me away from photography. I have since entered into the world of business and my creativity took a back seat to continuing to make a solid living in management. Six and a half years ago, I met my life partner and he encouraged me to pick up where I had left off so many years ago looking through the lens. Photography had become a different world than what I had experienced so many years before, but I fell back into love with capturing the many gifts that surround me. Sharing those images with others affords me great happiness and I have once again begun to record the world through my lens.
