Photography provides me with a means to capture a beautiful moment in life. I've been at it, off and on, since I was a Brownie Scout, back in the dark ages. After retiring in 2010, I decided to get more serious about it. My former passion was to create abstract images, using Photoshop. Now days, I have a Photoshop routine for most straight images, that seems to be sufficient for me. I still like to consider photos as inks on a palate, for creative images.
