Hey, ya'll!

I am a former lurker who wandered off and decided to come back. I hope I will be more active this time.

I began photography in the early 80's when living in New Orleans and dating another amateur photographer. We used to hit the thrift stores for old cameras and repair them for fun. I never got into a darkroom, although that is on the bucket list. Through the years I have taken a few online classes and only in the past 6 months have started posting on another photo site which I am not so sure I will stick with. I have published a time or two and sold a couple of shots, but nothing major.

I am an available light, manual settings, hand-held kind of girl who needs to get more into the habit of using a tripod. Currently shooting with a Nikon D5200 and an 18-55 Nikkor VR 1.35-5.6 as a walk-around lens. I have a 200mm telephoto somewhere but rarely use it. I am also an avid gardener so my favorite subjects tend to be plants and my cats. I have started and dropped 3 365 projects in the past and am thinking of starting another one on my 64th birthday in February and seeing how far I get this time. I currently live in western NC, where I was born and raised. Came back home a few years ago after putting on shoes, going to town, and learning a thing or two.
