Photo collection from 10-day cruise in the Caribbean Sea on the Holland-America's MS Zuiderdam. From Ft. Lauderdale, we sailed to Holland-America's private island in the Bahamas (Half Moon Cay), then onto Aruba, Curaçao, and Panama Canal. After the Canal, we sailed on to Costa Rica before heading home.
I am an amateur photography enthusiast who has experimented with photography for over 40 years, having started with a Canon FTb and my own darkroom setup. After visiting San Francisco in 1977, I became interested in selling small prints of sights I had photographed in Northern Virginia outside Washington, DC (USA). In addition to doing the craft show circuit, I took candid family portraits and baby pictures. For over 8 years, I have been experimenting with digital photography and happily snap a wide variety of pictures on my travels and when at home in Central Virginia. My first serious digital camera was a Canon PowerShot S2 IS (3.2 mp), but in June 2007, I purchased my first dSLR, a Canon Rebel XTi (Digital Kiss) with the standard 18-55mm "kit" lens. I soon added a Canon EOS 28-135mm lens to my arsenal and the Speedlite 580EX II flash unit. I am a Macintosh user and love to work with Aperture, Apple's photo management/editing software.
