WOW! About to start Year 9 of the 365 Project....Now that I am retired, you would think I would have so much more free time for photography, but I am busier than ever enjoying my life. I have now finished my tenure as President of the local Photography Club, and have only 5 more months as Past President. I became less involved this year with photoshoots, and workshops, being busy with so many other activities. There are so many opportunities here, living at the beach. Shorebirds change weekly with migration. Unfortunately, I didn't get out once this year for a whale watching tour and while I did get a couple of black bear shots, I didn't get over to the mainland to see the grizzlies. Currently I have four point and shoots, a Canon SX 20 IS, a Canon SX 30 IS (neither of which I use at all) a Canon SX 50 IS and a Canon SX60 IS. In addition to my Canon T1i, I now also have a T6i. I am barely using the SX50 IS anymore and most of my photos are with the SX60 IS. I find it more versatile as it is lighter, and I have a better zoom capability. I also have a small Nikon and of course my iPhone that I have yet to master picture taking. I love photography but lack the discipline to do enough to improve, so I have decided to give this yet another try. My favorite topics are wildlife, landscape and my pets. Gus loves to get out in the bush and run the trails. I also have two cats, Devon, and Benjy.
