I've always enjoyed photography. It all started when I was twelve when I built a photo lab in my basement. I was hooked immediately. I spent hours down there making black and white prints. While I enjoyed the wet lab process, digitial is much more fun. I finally updated my year old, 2M pixel Canon S200 camera and bought an 8 Mpixel Nikon P3. I'm finding Flickr is a lot of fun (and addictive).
I tend to take pictures of a variety of things and I like to experiment with different photo effects on occasion. Since my camera is small, I tend to drag it everywhere.
I just purchased a Nikon D80 and am having a great time getting to know it's capabilities. It's an amazing piece of equipment. I still drag my P3 with me everywhere though! Just bought a 50mm f1.8 lens - they're only $95 and they perfect for portraits.
I also have an Olympus SW1030. I brought it because it's waterproof to 30ft, freeze proof and crush proof! The quality is reasonable.
I recently bought a Fuji F70EXR because it had a nice optical zoom and some interesting low light features. It's a reasonable, small camera.
PBS contacted me the other day and told me my photo would be used as a backdrop for a choir on show coming up next year and asked me for a website reference so, I put this together... It's not really finished yet, so if you have any comments, I'd appreciate any input!

I found a very cool site called Yesterdayslife. It creates a very nice gallery view of your photos.
