"There is an old Native American saying that I enjoy: "Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture your heart."
A few years ago on my 50th birthday I began a new hobby--photography. Little did I know at the time that my heart would be captured by the sheer joy of photographing beautiful things and people. I have spent many hours increasing my knowledge of how to take good pictures. I also read many books and magazines to train my "eye" to see beautiful images. Last year I took two online classes to improve my prints and the composition of my photos. Digital photography is a wonderful outlet for me because it brought together my lifelong interests in art and technology. I'm kind of an "artsy geek."
In my favorite movie, "Chariots of Fire," Eric Liddell said: "I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure." When I take photographs I also feel His pleasure. I share my photography in hopes that you will also be encouraged by the beauty of God's creation as seen through my lenses.
