Welcome to my Photostream. Thank you for your visit!
My photostream, as you will see, is pretty diverse. I take pictures when I travel and right here in my own back yard, both figuratively and literally.
I'm delighted when I get a great image SOOC, but when I don't, I'll crop, level, saturate, frame, sepia, or otherwise enhance.
I'm not a fan of HDR, though I've used the effect in one or two, and I don't like what I call "jigsaw puzzle pictures"(very tame landscapes).
I do like "slice of life" pics taken in public places and at public events.Creativity and good humor deight me.
I don't care for anything "dark".
I have learned quite a bit about photography since I joined up and have met many photographers whom I admire greatly and who have been very supportive an encouraging and friendly!
About Contacts: I notice that some people add Contacts and are never seen again. Can I assume that if you add me as a Contact that it's because you want to visit and comment?
To date,46 of my pictures have appeared in Explore, I've posted over 4000 pics and have had many, many views and comments from all of the world. How gratifying it is to have others look at what you have done!
