I live on the east coast of North Carolina and have been happily married for over 50 years. I have retired from a 52 year career in healthcare. I have always had an interest in photography. My first camera was a Brownie flash. I was able to seriously get back into this hobby, now obsession, in 2009. In 2012 – I embarked on a Project 365 and am happy to say that I successfully completed it . There were no limitations on the daily photo I took and discovered that I love macro. (it may have something to do with enjoying microscope work when I worked in the clinical laboratory years ago). I repeated the Project 365 in 2019 and learned that there is something to photograph daily if you look hard enough and I still love macro. Beach photography and anything nature are also favorites of mine. I enjoy looking at all the pictures that others are taking as well on this site as well as other sites. To keep things fresh and stretch me a bit, I participate in themed groups on Flickr.

  1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and liking a post in the 2013 Tulip series. I have only seen a couple of your posts but liked both very much. I look forward to seeing more.
    On another note, we have similar backgrounds. I am a pharmacist by degree and a passion for photography, which I now do professionally.
    Please stop by my blog again soon!
    Blessings, Robyn

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment. I shoot with a Canon 7D and 6D. I have several lenses that cover macro through telephoto, I have learned over the years that this “little” hobby of mine is quite expensive ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. You can delete this comment – but two typos in your about page
    The word talking is there twice
    love macro. (it may have something to do
    I think the period after macro needs to go and just lead into parentheses
    But so minor eh ?

    1. Thanx Lisa. I probably need to update it. I have always enjoyed taking photos ever since I was a kid. I got my first DSLR about 11 years ago and haven’t looked back. Photography has become my very expensive hobby!!

      1. I have always love taking photos. Donโ€™t know why I didnโ€™t get a better quality camera sooner. Guess now was just the time. Iโ€™m loving it too!
