I love photography. When I was in elementary school, I took some courses at the Audubon Society on nature photography and was hooked. Years later, after my children were born, I started playing with the 35mm again, then got in the ease of digital.
Someday -- once I have completed my MFA -- I hope to go back and take some courses on digital photography, get a really good camera, and start some serious picture taking.
In the meantime, I try to get out whenever possible and experiment. Here are some images from a special autumn day I managed to sneak away and take a meditational hike along a trail in a nearby state forest. For the first time, I started to play with some of the settings instead of just a point-and-shoot approach.
