Hi there! I have been taking pictures for over 30 years and still consider myself an amateur. Only recently have I done much with them, selling cards and calendars in the local marketplace. Wunderground is my testing ground for interesting pics that may end up in next years calendar, and a great place to be inspired by other's creativity. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty my fellow WU photographers can capture or the positive energy and spirit you all put forth. You are truly inspiring and help me to improve. I have lived in the Northeast my entire life, taking up residence in 8 of these majestic states. Traveling and photography are my passion, but not my living. Not yet anyway. A girl can dream!
