I'm just beginning to bloom by 

If you look at a random selection of seeds, they do not look like anything special. And yet, if each one is nurtured and given the necessities of life, it will grow into a beautiful flower or a delicious fruit or maybe even a tree. It is the same with every human being. If nurtured, the seed of our potential can grow and become something of value.

first bud on my hydrangea – June 4, 2010

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.
