As a note on my work, I don't care if anyone uses it for something you want to do, as long as you give me credit for the picture. I would be pleased if someone liked my work well enough to want to use it. HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME PICTURES I HAVE ASKED NOT TO BE USED and it so states below the picture. And, thanks for your co-operation! There is a lot of beautiful work out there, and I like to keep some of the pictures for my own pleasure, but, when I encounter photographs with the deviantART logo smack dab in the middle, I don't even continue looking at the work. That is a complete turn-off.

This has been fun putting pictures on deviantART.  Shooting some, and finding some pictures I shot in the past.  Quality depends on which camera I used.  Scanning film or prints aren't very good.   Early digital pictures are fair, but my current camera, a Fuji S-7000 are better, but having some focusing issues.  Hope for a new camera sometime this year, but a new Apple computer is ahead of it in priorities.

Well, loading is going better for me, now with a little experience.  I will keep going.  This has stimulated me to make more photographs.  Hope I get better at it.  Would like a new 35mm style digital camera, I believe my old Fuji S-7000 is getting tired and not focusing the way it should.
