If I could live my life to live over, I would be a biologist because nature provides me with such joy and passion. I am able to capture and share my experiences in nature with good camera gear, and through the medium of RedBubble. I hope you enjoy my work capturing scenes from nature.

    So sweet, David. I was wondering when you would be posting more pictures of your grandson!

  • Thank you, Michelle. I have several more I’d like to post, but I don’t like to send too many on one occasion. They will trickle up over time. I am also trying not to post family snapshots, but to find art opportunities, and to share those. Happy Easter weekend, Michelle.

    Wow what a beautiful heartfelt image…and so full of poetry. I just love the babies hand holding his mothers finger. I would like to wish you a wonderful Easter.

  • Thank you, Anthea. I would love to say that this particular image was planned. I was snapping away continuously, and discovered this one when was going through the uploaded images. I cropped away some of the extraneous bits, resulting in this one. Happy Easter to you too, Anthea.

    David, you are a talent. A very artful shot. I have a feeling our camera bags are very similiar. I have this same lens and you have used it to full advantage here. Great work.

  • This a great compliment, Steve. Thank you. I just bought the 50mm AFS lens and love the results I have been getting. Sometime we will have to compare the rest of our equipment.
