About Me

My photo
In the last few years I have yearned for something more, something to push my creativity and challenge my mind. Through the 365 Project and Photography I have found a passion that has filled a hole in my heart. A sense of being and a meaning to my life. I hope my pictures live on forever even if only through my children and my blog.

Bike Race

I was in need of some sports pictures for a competition we have in July. My aunt knew this and so happened to see a bike race right near her house this morning, so she called me and let me know when the next race would be. I went over and took some shots of the beginning and end. The end was exciting, but scary as a group of bikes collided. A couple of bikers were taken to the hospital, hopefully they're not hurt to bad.

NC Zoo

On Good Friday I decided to take a trip to the zoo. Unfortunately it began to rain so I spent most of my time in the aviary. I loved capturing all the birds, but it was hard to do. They were fast and the light was not the best so if I was fast enough to get a shot, my shutter speed wasn't fast enough to get a sharp shot. I didn't want to put my ISO too high because 800 and above on my camera adds a lot of noise. I had fun and did get some nice shots. The aviary would be a great place for pictures on a sunny day. Guess I'll have to plan another trip.

Alligator Adventure

I took this a few weeks ago when my DD and I went to Myrtle Beach. She wanted to go to alligator adventure because it was too cold on the beach. I took a lot of picture of alligators, birds and snakes, but these 2 were my favorites.

My Photography Club has a competition on flowers later this year. Here are some I've taken in the last few weeks. Maybe one will be a winner.
