I'm not a professional photographer, but I became interested in photography in a big way when I got my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 900S. I could experiment with taking pictures to my heart's content and not worry about ruining or running out of film! Several digital cameras and a couple DSLRs are in my bag of tools now.
What you'll see here are images created In My Own Backyard, so to speak. Each of us is surrounded by beauty wherever we are - we have only to open our eyes, learn to see what the camera sees and find interesting ways of capturing all that beauty. Recently, a new pup came to live with us. Ahhhh, a new and fun subject to photograph! All of her pictures will be put in a digital scrapbook and some will make it to this blog.
Since we are experiencing a pretty autumn season here in the Midwest in the USA, it is fitting that my first image depicts some of that beauty.
Here is Sadie. How could we resist this sweet little girl? Isn't she the cutest little dog? She's a cross between a toy fox terrier and a beagle.
