Biography

I got hooked on photography about 50 yrs ago and my 1st pic was of Niagara Falls...years later, in the 70's I saved and bought my first real camera-a Minolta SRT201..for some reason, life got in the way and 30 years later I got the photo bug once again. Just received the basic NikonD3300 for Christmas 6 months ago, and am having a blast ! Had no idea what digital was, and didnt know how to insert a memory card. By watching pros like Mike Browne and others on YT, and practicing a lot, I was able to start shooting manually from the beginning..what a ride it's been so far..I would welcome any criticism from my photos, so I can improve along the way !

      A dunny! At least that's what we called them in Australia. Or thunder box. We grew up with one for a time and were very excited when Dad started renovating our home and brought the dunny inside. Was just under 40 years ago.

        Thank you very much. Irma will have an effect on our area about 11pm EST . We are on the East Coast. The latest shift west made our situation better unless it makes a wild turn East and comes across the state as Charlie did. I'll be up late tonight keeping an eye on things. Thank you for the concern.
