- This avatar is not current but I'm still the same person inside this body.
Although I was exposed to photography as art many years ago I never actually took photographs until the spring of 2007 (My Peru folder). I find all aspects of photography to be very meditative. I mostly use my point & shoot Panasonic TZ3, I love it and subsequently purchased several used TZ3's on eBay just in case something happened to mine, they are slowly dying one by one. But I also occasionally use a Canon T1i (aka EOS 500D) with which I use a Tamron 28-300 zoom and also a Canon 85mm portrait lens with fantastic depth of field. This portrait lens had such wonderful reviews I had to get one (eBay again). My favorite time is late afternoon for its rich color and dramatic lighting, and I especially like shadows in my photos. Evening until at least an hour after sunset is a favorite with me too, especially if followed by a glass of wine. I know I would enjoy the beauty of the morning light as well but alas, I'm not a morning person.
Vancouver, in the province of British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, is a beautiful city. We have so many and such varied photo opportunities within our city and our entire province and country, and they are multiplied by the four seasons and various weather conditions.
I spend a lot of time fulfilling my love of photography and my wandering nature. I love to travel and have only recently started doing so... there is so much of the world to see!!!
