I am a (now a) 50-something year old photography enthusiast born and raised on the east coast USA, currently living with my family in Europe. I love taking photos, talking photography, reading about photography, learning from your pages and pictures, and most of all..having fun. I consider myself a “Hobbiest” at best. I took a few photo classes in college, but that was years ago in the day of 35mm negatives and darkrooms. Everything I know now about digital imaging I have learned since buying my Nikon D90 soon after I first moved to Europe in 2008, reading the manual, pouring over the internet for help, looking at YOUR posts and blogs, and TAKING PICTURES. This blog is my first, and I hope to use it mostly as a means to explore my hobby and learn from your pages and input.
