Everything in an image is important

Everything in an image is important. Everything.

So, even if you have this beautiful band of color in the middle, everything matters all the way to the edges.

Way up here

he can view the plains,

and feel the cool relief

of the African rains.

Majestic and glossy,

his patterned skin

from the rest of his kin

Necks that swing

and crash with force

                                                                FAVORITES                                                                               I have so many favorites, it’ hard to pick one. Of course my grandchildren are Number One. I have four grandchildren, three boys and one girl. They are all very special, and are very dear to my heart. My pets are my next favorite, and I miss the ones that have passed on very much, especially our rescue dog Saurus. Someone had dropped her off and she found her way to our porch and into my heart very deeply. We are now down to one cat, Roanie. She is very special.


My love of Photography started very young, maybe around age eight, I had a Kodak Brownie Camera in black and white, and progressed from there. I always liked to take pictures. I would put them in a scrapbook with captions. I’m afraid that book is falling apart and in very bad disarray. I progressed from there and kept upgrading but was never happy until I got a SLR Camera, first film, then digital, especially the digital when I could take hundreds of pictures.

I am going to start with my favorite animal, the giraffe. A recent visit to San Diego safari Park gave us some excellent pictures with the giraffes.
