An amateur digital photographer, I always carry my camera but don’t have as much time as I would like to seek and shoot. / I have...

An amateur with a small cheap digital camera I have been away from RB for some time but hope to get into the habit again.Watch this space!

I think I have a good eye for colour and composition but am limited to what I can produce due to lack of decent software.

My camera goes everywhere with me.

My favourite subjects are flowers and insects, and waterfowl,

Why flowers?
They are beautiful, colourful… and stand pretty still!

Why water fowl?
I love feeding the ducks at the local boating lake and when they are well fed they tend to hang around a while.

Insects are more of a challenge – by the time I get them in focus they have moved onwards and upwards!

MaryMina is my User name: Mina being a childhood nickname, Mary referring to the Holy Mother.

I would love to be able to take photos to face spiritual writing. I have in mind to produce booklets of short meditations, one day, God willing.

Advice and support is always welcome. Thank you.

I am so behind on RB! I keep taking pics and it takes so long to edit, sort, etc. I manage to upload a few at a time but I am not keeping up with the work of others. Sorry folks. I have been viewing a few but not taking time to comment. I really enjoy all your work and will catch up eventually. Having said that, my daughter has just called to say she’s coming to stay for a few days…..…

I can hardly believe it… I have a ‘snap’ featured in the ‘Bits and Pieces’ Group. / So… I would just like to say a massive thank you to all my Red Bubble friends who have watched, commented and encouraged me. I may well have given up long ago if it hadn’t been for you. / I feel like I have received an Oscar….. / God bless you all.

Please advise

I have so many photos on my PC… mostly family and holiday snaps. Now as I’m getting more and more interested in my surroundings … thanks to joining RB… I’m adding ‘snaps’ everyday. I suppose, given time, I will become more ruthless and delete those that are not so interesting or of poor quality but I can’t bear to do that, just yet! / So…. wh…
