I got a new camera - a Nikon D80 - for Christmas. I've taken lots of photos and tried out lots of different settings. I am learning all about aperture and exposure and shutter speed and all that fun stuff! Here's my cat Callie. Night Portrait setting with no flash. Focal Length: 180mm Exposure: 1/125 sec Aperture: f/5.3 ISO: 1600. Quantaray zoom lens 55mm-200mm.
Growing up, I used to play in the dirt outside all summer long, often with no shoes. I'd romp with friends through the woods, making forts and "dirt soup". My dad would carry me upstairs at the end of the day to wash my blackened feet in the bathtub.
I still like to play in the dirt. I love gardening and have taken that passion to the next level - capturing creation with a camera.

"A photographer who made a picture from a splendid moment, an accidental pose of someone or a beautiful scenery, is the finder of a treasure." ~Robert Doisneau
