Hobbies....I've had many in my life time. In my earlier years, roughly thirty years ago, you would find me cutting and stitching up children's clothing. Home decorations were also known to be sewn or sold.
Then I found the art of tole painting, remember when it was all the rage? I could be found cutting out decorative wood art, staying up painting half the night then trying to find a spare spot to the display the finished project. In my book you could never have enough wood art in the house.
This era is photography, my new found love. Well not really new, photography has always been an interest of mine but was just out of reach. I could never justify photography and the expense that went along with it. Now that the kids are raised, life has slowed down, I have time and the means to pursue my long awaited love.
I still have much to learn about this new art form and I am loving the road that photography has taken me down. I enjoy meeting new friends because of my photography habit. I get a thrill out of being able to share my shots for the day and explain why, how and where they were taken.
Like the Confucius said not everything should be made simple and my life is a testament of the fact. I have been told I am a complicated, complex person and I will be the first to agree.
I have no rhyme of reason for doing anything, I just do what I like and and joy the rewards.
Thanks view friends for helping me pursue passion for Photography, you've helped just by leaving you comments and encouragement.
