My name is Karen and I love photography. I started with black and white development in high school, and went on to other work, then gained a career in the Coast Guard and gave up my passion of taking pictures when I married and had kids. Now that my kids are in college, I have found that fun again, and I am discovering more and more with digital---much more work than film ever was. Topeka, Kansas gives me some nature, but I love to go West and North to get the wild animals, and costal shots. I enjoy sports photography and people, so I take a lot of pictures now with my Digital Nikon's. I love WU so I can see what great pictures everyone is putting out there. Thanks for the inspiration.
