Hello... and thanks for visiting...

I am an amateur to photography and have only been shooting for a few years now. I have a dear friend to thank for getting me into this hobby. I am having a blast learning about photography and am learning new techniques and ways to view the world around us every day. I also like that it pushes me to stop, view and enjoy the moment. I have this site to thank for what seems to be new inspiration and ideas and views that seem to keep pushing me forward in ability to capture better and better photos of the wonderful places and people that surround me.
