I've always envied artists who can interpret and capture what they see and share it with others. I became fascinated with photography when I received a Nikon CoolPix 990 for Christmas several years ago and I discovered I could do just that!
After much fun with a Kodak P712, I graduated to the Canon Rebel XSi, then a Canon 7D, and currently a Canon 5D Mark III.
I love the outdoors, and what better excuse to wander aimlessly than to have a camera around your neck. In my view, photography legitimizes "glimpsing" as a past-time.
