My love for photography started when I was in high school. At the time I use to borrow my mom's 35mm Canon Sure shot. One of those old cameras that took pretty good pictures for its time and day. My dad notice my interests in photography and purchased me my first good camera, a Ricoh 35mm. I still have the camera in my bedroom and someday plan to pass it down to my oldest daughter who also shares an interest in photography. I guess it is a family thing because my dad also has an interests for photography.
They say pictures tell a story. My pictures tell a story of life, nature, my love for my children, and my pain for my son I lost.
I love taking pictures of nature. It is amazing what you can find in your own backyard to photography. Some might say I am fortunate because I live near the Bay, the Gulf, and the countryside. The first picture is actually a weed that I found growing in my garden. You know how sometimes you find weeds growing in your backyard and they look like flowers. This is one of those type of flowers. I liked the way it turned out on the wood when I took the picture.
We have a lot of farms in Baldwin County. A lot of farm land is being taken over by subdivisions but sometimes when you drive down the back roads in the countryside there are a few barns still left standing. Barns fascinate me. I don't know why but they do. I was driving down the road one day on my way to pick my girls up from school and I saw this empty field. Across the field was a barn and an old fence that was about to fall apart.
You don't have to be a pro to take photographs. Just loving the art of photography is enough to pull you into and with experience and practice you learn what works and what doesn't. I am still learning! So enjoy my pictures and please do not use them for your personal use inless you contact me and I give you permission. These are my work and I have worked hard on them.
