I have enjoyed taking photographs for a very long time. My father and I spent hours developing film together in our makeshift darkroom which also doubled as the Master Bathroom. I was fortunate to have free access to a camera and film and I loved playing with them.

Having shot hundreds of rolls of film and either developing them myself or paying someone to do it gives me an old fashioned view on the patience of setting up a shot. Weeks or months would go by before you developed your film and got to see your results. What f stop did I use that time and be sure to remember not to do that again.

The digital age has changed the art of photography for me and I am torn. I love having the ability to instantly decide if a shot is good or bad and either save or delete it, but I also see a trend with the digital age to simply "fix" a shot later with editing tools rather than patiently work for it. Now I play with the automatic functions on my camera rather than F stops and I love that moment of instant gratification but I maintain the habit of carefully setting up my shots. The majority of my photographs posted are not altered in any way. Only recently have I started to play with editing tools and those shots which I've uploaded clearly stand out.

Not having the right camera at the right time, that will never change.

For the last seven years my husband and I have been cruising the Pacific on our 27' sailboat "Lealea" and through our travels we have visited many beautiful places. We are currently spending our second Winter in S.E. Alaska and enjoying the beauty.
