I’m digital SLR enthusiast, which is camera-marketing-speak for “person who does not get paid money to take pictures.” I’m also a mother, wife and dog lover. I don’t get paid for any of that either. (Fortunately, I do get paid a little to be a science grad student.)
I take photographs because they’re there. They never stop happening. I try to capture them. Mostly, I fail. Pictures whiz by, unrecorded. But sometimes, I get lucky with something worth sharing. That’s what this blog is about.
This is one of my favorite pictures. I took over 100 shots of this set-up. (Ike was about 6 months old, so he couldn’t crawl away. That helped enormously.) But the thrill of getting a good shot was worth all the duds and then some. That’s why I love photography. When it’s good, it’s really good.
