Photography is my second career begun in 2003. I hadn't planned it when I retired, but suddenly I found myself taking pictures with a little Sony point and shoot I had bought. I took pictures of my flowers, birds, pretty scenes I saw. Something amazing happened! I saw things in my pictures that hadn't registered in my mind while I was just out and about. Suddenly I saw bees and bugs on and in my flowers, I saw even more beauty in the scenery around me, I saw animals behaving differently than I'd ever noticed before. I found my passion!!!
When I began to show a few of my photos to friends, I found them getting excited about them too. The principal at the school where I had worked advised me to "do something" with my pictures. So I made greeting cards and sold them at a few shops in my neighborhood. But I soon realized I had to do more. I entered a few photo contests and won a few prizes. And I began talking with people. I listened to them and their thoughts about my photographs. I realized that they were becoming as excited about the birds, the scenes, the wildlife as I was. So here I am, communicating about nature through my photographs.
