Thank you for taking time to view my images, I appreciate any comments and rather than a quick thank you will do my best to view your work and comment back in kind. Constructive critiques are welcome.

Inspired by my friend Michelle's photos and the purchase of a 1st dsl camera. ( Jan.2012)

Update September 2013 - woohoo I finally uploaded my 365th shot - have taken so many more and learnt even more than that, what a journey! A fellow 365er once said "I get so busy with my laziness" - yup that does happen to me (especially if a good book is involved. Sometimes it is just a case life taking over and leaving me in a scramble, but I'll keep coming back - I love that feeling of getting that shot that I planned and went for.

Update: May 2012, hit a glitch in uploading and at times taking photo's - time, my evil enemy! Have added an iphone to my collection and hope to learn and grow more with this addition. Love this website and continue to be amazed and in awe of the talent here, so inspiring!
