Photography allows me to satisfy several of my needs . . the need to be outdoors, the need to experience new places, the need to build collections, the need to educate and the need to continually learn new things. I hope you enjoy meeting the people and pets I've photographed in My Family, admiring the plant life in my virtual garden, exploring the places I've visited, observing our local wildlife in their natural habitat, strolling through my collection of captive exotic animals, stargazing in My Universe and learning what I've learned in My Journal.
I'm very much a hobbyist photographer and My Collection shows progression in my skill level. Some images will be far from perfect. I welcome your feedback (as comments) to help me improve and maybe someday move beyond amateur status.
