A Little "Light" Reading by 

I happened to have this pile of books on my piano bench temporarily and had the urge to take this photo. Always trying to look for a way to eat more healthfully.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

  • Thank you, Judy. I never thought of the Orton Effect as laminating, but it does look like it!!!
