You gotta check this out...

To begin with - I was out on sick leave the past week (read "near-death-with-a-terribly-infected-leg-but-it's-almost-all-better-now") - so I apologize for being away for a bit.  The injury I sustained while back-packing last summer, I found out, is now a weak spot in my body.  So - I'm susceptible to recurring infection there, and that's what happened. Missed a week of work... slept for 24 hours straight...  on three different anti-biotic drugs...

I'm doing much better now, but it was a bit of a rough patch there.

Today I'm going to brag on my daughter.  I'm right-brained - artistically inclined - and I'm so amazed and delighted to see how she has taken after me in this way.  I love to take pictures.  I was one of the first in my family to get anything other than an instamatic.  A Pentax K1000 SLR.  Bought a lot of lenses, filters, etc. over the years and took a lot of pictures and did pretty well at it.  Then - As the years went on - and for a lot of varied reasons, photography took a backseat to the rest of life and my other hobbies / interests.

My daughter got the photo bug at about age 18.  She has continually upgraded her camera, read up on techniques and methods, and has taken thousands and thousands and thousands of pictures - an advantage she has in digital photography that we couldn't have begun to imagine in the '70s and '80s.  She now has a really nice camera, a Facebook page for her photography, and is close to setting up a website and trying to start a business.

She's really good and is naturally talented.  She's mainly into landscape photography and has a great eye for subject matter and composition and does a excellent job of capturing it all with the lens.  These are just a few examples of he work.  I encourage you all to take a look - click on them for much larger images - her pictures are for sale!  you can check them out on Facebook!
