A way for the peace is beautifully done throughout and aptly named! The artists' vision comes at a time when the world is more restless...

Four years ago I took a renewed interest in photography, one of the most enjoyable hobbies of my teenage years. And not just capturing a technically perfect photograph, but the soul of the moment.

I cut my teeth on a 35mm Pentax K1000, and learned the basic three on that - aperture, exposure, and filmspeed. I'm not a true purist (I shoot digital now - Cannon T2i) but the old manual cameras left their mark on me, and I am constantly going throught the menus and finding what I can tweak to improve the most difficult shots. And I still own a replacement K1000, and an old 1960's Mamiya Sekor 1000DTL my father gave me.

I enjoy a wide variety of photography styles and subjects - concerts, sporting events, street, night, black and white, nature, portrait...and I will add more to the list. With new software purchased this year, I aim to learn HDR as well.

Hopefully within the year I will begin professional freelance work. But I have *much* to learn! So please, feel free to leave comments and critiques. No need to be nice, as long as it's constructive. I am a harsh critic of my own work, but it is necessary in order to grow and produce the absolute best photos that capture the soul of every shot and can truly be called ART!

The best to all of us in this endeavor!

Personal Quote: Anything worth doing is worth doing right!
Interests
I spent three years of my childhood in Door County, Wisconsin...the most beautiful place I have lived and home to my fondest memories.

My brother and I used to bike to Potawatomi State Park from Sturgeon Bay with some school-friends on a Saturday afternoon, fish, throw rocks in the Bay, drop pennies off the fire tower (in defiance of the rules), and eat peanut-butter sandwiches. Those were the days!

I hadn't been back to visit in 20 years when I took a much needed life-vacation...one of those where you just vanish for four days and don't tell a soul. The beauty and simplicity I'd forgotten over the years overwhelmed, and calmed me...

The Birch trees. I'd forgotten about the Birch! Who could forget the Birch? So pure, and serenely happy amid the greenness of life...even in the waning summer?

This image came home in my camera.
The peace came home in my soul.

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
