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.
