The basics: wife, mother to 4 grown daughters, grandmother to 12 and stage 3 colon cancer survivor (6 years).
Photography: I have had a camera in my hands since my teens, from a little 110 to my first K100 SLR. I then progressed to digital photography but I have always still been mainly a point and shoot photographer. I was recently "restructured" after 24 years with the same company and since I can't really look for other employment currently (surgery to be scheduled which will put me out of commission for at least 8-10 weeks) I decided to get myself a new DSLR and really start working on my skills. I am having a blast. The internet has made this journey so much easier, from new techniques to practical applications and encouragement from sites like this one.
