I have loved photography for as long as I can remember ~ which would be my dad waking me up in the wee hours of the mourning to take photos of me...

I have made many friends here at flickr and love this site as we are all like minded....we beat to the march of a different drummer and only we can understand one another..........:)......

we will lay in the wet grass, stand until our backs hurt, and make moves only a photographer would do....just to get that one shot..... or any shot.....:)

The talent here at flickr is amazing......such great photographers......as for myself I dont expect to get the perfect shot.....just shots that I like...........that is what makes us a family.......and we all learn from one another..

I am often asked what equipment I use......I have several cameras and lens but mostly use a cannon 30D and 50D

thanks for stopping by.........Gail


please visit Jeff Parris gallery, you will find his art most interesting.........Gail

    She has wide range of photos that include macro shots, close-ups with droplets of water, and some amazing wildlife shots. I recommend to everybody to check all the photos in her photo streams. She has an eye for beautiful nature photographs."

    "Gail is always ready to offer a kind word of encouragement or a favorable comment to new members of Flickr. This is a sign of maturity and confidence; clearly evident in her marvelous photography. She is in complete control of her tools and uses them with ease to express her unique vision. We may first think of her beautiful florals and waterdrops, but she handles any subject well. One of my faves in her stream is a baby's foot peeking through swirls of pink and yellow. Always an inspiration...thanks Gail !!!"

    "Gail is a fine photographer - and that is readily apparent by just checking out her latest postings on Flickr. She has a real sense of color and composition, and uses them so very well together.

    But what you might not know about this classy lady is that she is also a kind and considerate friend to hundreds of other Flickr photographers. She is always willing to comment and praise other's photos here, and she is a Flickr leader by displaying such generosity on a regular basis.

    We are very lucky to have her here at this magical site, and I'm pleased to be able to call her a friend..."

    "l_inda_gail, aka Nana to me, is my inspiration. Everything I do in photography, scrapbooking, and anything else that calls the creative side of mind, I have learned from her or have been inspired from her in some way or another. Her personality is astonishing and her wisdom priceless. She is a great teacher in all things and I am forever greatful of everything. Besides, I wouldn't be addicted to photography, movie making, scrapbooking, and digital scrapbooking if it wasn't for her. =)"
