I live in Southern California, retired, and crazy about photography. I began this journey having some background in photography (published) in my younger years. Mostly self taught, I have used everything from the old brownies, polaroid, a Ricoh, Nikon FE 35mm, and I now own the Nikon D3100 for my first go at digital. I started this project with a little encouragement from my youngest daughter in Jan 2011. A surgery put me off for a while and now I am ready to go at it again. Currently I will be teaching myself the editing programs and continue learning about these digital cameras. I may not thank you individually for your comments and FAV's so I will say thank you now for taking the time out of your day to stop by my project. I love all the tips and help, and appreciate criticisms so please feel free to say you hate this or that too! I am Wow'ed everyday by the wonderful photography here, so thank you 365'ers!
