My view

Welcome to 'Bird's Eye View'!

When I was 18 my father handed me a Nikon and told me to get in the car. We drove through sleepy little Iowa towns and down winding gravel roads. He started me on what will be a life long journey of seeing the world through the lens of my camera.

To me photography is an art. The art of capturing a moment or a natural expression is what I love to do. I will give you direction and then find your personality within that pose.

What I see through my lens is no different than what you see every day - the only difference is I have the ability to stop time and provide you with those memories.

Project 365: Day 31 'wanges'

I believe it was my brother when he was young that called these, 'Wanges'

Project 365: Day 30 a look beyond

Confession: I took these on Friday.

One of the comments I received was that they would have liked to see beyond the macro shots I took.

These are the photos I took of the landscape that day...

Project 365: Day 29 Camera Phone Edition

Even *I* need a break from my beloved Nikon every once in a while... So today I bring you pictures I snapped on our way to a movie this afternoon!

I thought I was being stealth like and had no idea that Henry caught me taking this picture:

Or Sam for that matter-- he is sure giving me a heck of a look:

As you can tell by this picture, the roads were nice a clear when I left... 

Which is a good thing, bc I am a complete and utter baby about drive in nasty weather. 

....and these were the roads on the way home. Gah. Like I said-- if I had known that they were going to be like this I would not have gone. But we are home, and the movie was cute! 

(We saw 'Tangled' in case you were wondering)

me, myself, and I

This is me 


I was in the middle of shooting the crayons seen on my other blog when Sam leaped onto my back and I had to turn the camera around to capture the moment. 

I dislike photos of myself. But only just after I take them. Give me a year or two and I look back and LOVE those same photos. Yes. It is messed up- I know.

 So I have resigned myself to taking self portraits (if that is what you want to call them) and then tucking them away where no one can see them until further notice. 

But what is the fun of that? You darling people come here and comment on my photos and really have not a clue as to who is taking them.

So I will start to post a few pictures of me.... doing what I love. Capturing time.
