A season's worth of experiences: I began taking pictures of flowers from the start of becoming involved with photography. Initially, it was a great way to test technique and camera quality. It quickly became a beautiful hobby. I enjoy trying to get as close as I can to my subjects, with close crops and intense detail. Eventually, I began to branch out and enjoy more scenery and nature, not to mention the architecture and people around me. I started to look at stories to tell, and how the adage, "A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words" is extremely apt.
