Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    There’s actually a group called LMAO Art. We have a grand total of one picture in there. :)

  • I think the appropriate response is – LOL! :-) (I’m giving my age away! ) What a great group!

  • Thank you SO much!!!! I guess he really was tired, ’cause usually just the sound of the camera being turned on is enough to make him run.
