A Gathering of Friends

I began taking photos on my Brownie Camera at the age of 9. They just didn't look like what I expected, so I began to make use of other cameras. I used a Polaroid Land Camera, 1940's Argus, Instamatic, and then moved to 35mm. Several Tri-flex cameras saw me through High School and College where I also picked up some photography courses. I married a Sony, purchased in Tokyo in 1965 when my husband was serving in Viet Nam. 20 years later, when batteries were no longer available, my family bought me a Canon 35 mm. that used film. I began to have my nature photos put on cd's. Some years later I switched to a digital Nikon 7007. I was in heaven! Unfortunately. that camera suffered a fateful crash during my move to Florida, and was immediately replaced by an EOS rebel. Now I am in full swing photographing my travels, my family and the wild life in the area that I so dearly love.
