Photography has been a long time hobby for me, ever since my dad put a camera in my hands at the age of about 4. No film of course, but I "took" pictures by the hundreds. I did finally graduate to having film in that old Brownie camera and eventually after several box cameras, got my first 35mm and spent many happy hours in the darkroom, where I really learned to appreciate Black and White photography. I now have moved onto digital and Photoshop. (no more chemicals and no more mess) but I do miss the darkroom work. I enjoy photographing anything that gets in front of my camera, but have a special place in my hart for birds in flight and micro work.
