My Favorite Hobby

This is a lens about my photography. I have already created one on this topic, but since this is the hobby I spend the most time on, there's always room for one more lens. I won't be giving any kind of advice, or anything like that. This is just a place for me to show off some of my best photos. I'll have them divided by people, places, and things.


I've been reading up on taking better photos and such, but I still have so much to learn. For now, I'll just take pictures to please myself.

All the images here were taken with a Vivitar 3815 camera. It's only 4.0 Megapixels, but I still love the pictures it takes. All the settings are automatic.

      Carmen is a most beautiful dog! She has the most deep brown color. Can I find that color in hair dye? Wasn't the photo gallery mod a pain in the butt? It took me forever to figure out that it has to be same size photos all with or without captions.

      I love taking pics too.

      It is perfectly acceptable to toot your own horn when you have done something you are proud of. Especially when it is pictures you are proud of, and the pics are of kids you are proud of!
