3WW - Callous - Interfere - Persistent
I have been given the gift of time to find my style in photography. It has become a passion to capture special moments, places and people. My favorite subject is my grandson TK. He has had a camera shoved in his face since he took his first breath. I don't want to miss one moment I have with him. I am very persistent in capturing his essence so I can remember every year we share. I have created a 3 year old ham.
My husband stole my heart with his love of gardening and has filled my life with beauty. Every summer he buys more flowers and I really try not to interfere, but he buys bulbs like women buy shoes. The results are spectacular and I have such variety to photograph. Living in the mountains has inspired him to create a garden for every season. I love the life he has painted for us.
The most challenging part of photography is lifting my arms without shaking. SLR's are too heavy for me so I have a light Canon Power Shot. It has the no shake feature, except when using the zoom. I have a tiny tripod, but Dave must be with me. I have a callous indifference to my limitations, so if I see my shot I just take it until I get it. If others try and take it for me it just does not work. We each see the same things differently.
My pictures are pieces of my life as seen through my eyes. Each moment in time I capture is like my poetry, straight from the heart.
