Welcome to my Blog



                         WELCOME



I've been an amateur photographer for almost 30 years now. I've done some paid work but for the most part I've been taking pictures just for the love of the hobby.  I started out with some pretty modest equipment, the first camera I ever used was a borrowed high school Konica manual camera, that I would take B&W film pictures with that I was able to then develop myself with school equipment.  I eventually moved to a manual Chinon camera, the first SLR I ever owned. I really learned how to work the manual controls, training that I still use today.  I think when I moved to the Canon brand and decided to try to take my photography more seriously, I started to see how enjoyable photography could be.
I've always feel like I get into these ruts, where I can't seem to find a reason to keep shooting. I also wanted to find things to photograph that I normally wouldn't think of as a subject to photograph. Some of the great photographers take the most insufficient thing and turn it  into a prize winning picture.
I'm starting this photo blog in hope that I can broaden my photographic  horizons and turn the most insufficient thing into something sufficient.
