Photography......


I love this photo of Maddox.

I have always loved photography.

I had a really nice 35 mm camera when the kids were little. Film and developing were so expensive so the occasion really had to be "film worthy". But still, I enjoyed it.


So when they came out with digital, Johnny right away bought me a Sony with a Carl Zeiss lens. It was an awesome camera and the pictures were so beatiful, sharp and crisp. And as digital camera's improved, he continued to up grade my camera. I have always felt that Johnny totally "got" my love of photography. And I have always felt so blessed to have a husband who believed and supported my passion.


Over the years, I have read 100's of books on photography.......studied pictures, read about photographers, taken classes and dreamed of taking pictures. To me, if someone can capture the subjects personality, then they have achieved the ultimate. Even with landscape pictures....if you can look at a picture and feel yourself there....I mean really feel yourself there, then the photographer has done a good job.


I have shot so many pictures trying to reach those goals. I may go through 100's of shots and then I find it.....the "money" shot. The one that captures everything I saw with my eyes or heard or felt. I'm getting better....I keep working, keep learning and keep dreaming. And I'm enjoying it...

I love your photography and share your love of it. I just wish I would have gotten a better camera sooner and taken the time to learn earlier in my life to take a good photograph. I also have read a ton of books and look at photographer blogs. How nice of your hubby to support you and mine has too!

Keep sharing your photography with all of us! I love it!
