1st official post

Are you a scanner?  I fit author Barbara Sher’s description of a scanner.  I’ve taken a lot of ribbing from family members over the years because I have so many interests and I don’t “stick with one.” According to Barbara Sher, we are actually a special kind of thinker genetically wired to be interested in many things. 

One of the interests in my life which always comes back in an ebb and flow is photography.
When I was little I loved taking random pictures, but back then is was cost prohibitive to let a child take so many photo’s  - the cost of film and developing pictures added up!  That is one of the reasons I love digital cameras – the freedom to take as many pictures as I want, and not worry about how much it costs!   
For more years than I like to admit, I have been promising myself that “someday” I would buy myself a nice camera.  This spring my father passed away and I remembered that life is fleeting.  I bought my camera and have been having fun exploring and experimenting ever since.

    how lovely that we have both found photography again after our Fathers passed away, something good from something bad. I'm sorry for your grief too, it isn't easy is it.
    I look forward to following your blog, you have some beautiful images on it.
