The Photographer

Taking Pix is Fun!

I take a lot of pictures with my old but very reliable Canon-D-60 digital camera. In fact, since it was purchased oh, around 10 years ago, I have taken more than 60,000 images. What I like about the more expensive digitals (this was one of the best you could get back when it was purchased) is the quality of the lens, and the camera itself, which makes all the difference in the world. I am strictly an amateur photographer but some people who have seen some of my photos said they wuld buy them from me. Let's just say I don't plan on quitting my day job but thanks.

I admit I don't really know what I am doing compared to an actual trained photographer but since I take these photos for myself does it really matter? I have learned quite a bit from asking others as well as by trial and error. In many cases, I use full manual settings so I can get the effect I am looking for. I love to take pictures of the sky and especially, of sunsets. I am sure my right eye has been damaged from doing that without the proper precautions. Wilflife is another favorite as is taking pix of my family.

Anyway, here are a few sample pix of some stuff from the past years, I hope you enjoy it.
