  8. 8. 1. for how long have you been into photography? I realized I liked photography when I purchased my first digital.... a 1.2 mb Sony Mavica that was huge and used floppy disks as the storage media. I probably took more photos with that camera that year - at age 44 - then I had taken in all my previous years combi- ned. I loved the fact that there was no „cost“ involved in develo- ping the photos...and I could turn them into a screensaver for my computer instead of sticking them in a scrapbook somewhere.... Now six years later, I‘ve purchased four more digital cameras.... including a DSLR this year. 2. why? what‘s the answer if friends ask you, while you‘re carrying your cam everywhere? 4. day or night? When people ask me why I carry a camera with me all the time, I I prefer the sunlight to take my shots, but am slowly but surely experimen- explain to them that when I didn‘t have one with me, I often found ting with dusk and night shots. myself questioning why I left it behind...because I was constantly „seeing“ potentially good photos... 5. favourite color(s)? 3. what is most often in your spot? My favorite color to photograph is green....whether it be the leaves of a plant or the fields of green in a landscape image. What I often have in my lens/spot is a member of my family....I‘m gifted in having an attractive set of kids and an attractive wife who are all kind enough to allow me to use them as unpaid models.... And finally, why am I here at Flickr...? although I fear they „tire“ of me always wanting to take their pho- tos... I‘m here because ... like so many others....I read about the site and thought of it as a storage backup for my digital photos initially. But then a few kind people actually commented and said they liked a photo or two and it gave me the confidence to expand my horizons and shoot some „real“ photo images that didn‘t have family members as the main subject....and then I started looking at other‘s work here and was amazed and challenged to do better...since so many talented people reside here.... Thanks for asking about „why“ I take photos and „why“ I‘m here.... I appreciate the invitation to answer those queries... And I appreciate anyone taking the time to read about me....
