For my dedicated and new readers - I'll be getting my photo editing software soon so that I can actually cycle out images I have captured. I take rather hi-res images and they are currently 'too big' to work.
And my approach to taking pictures is very 'on the spot' - I'm not into true manipulation of the photo - other than cropping. Photoshopping in things, changing the images is not my 'thing'.
I love to shoot my Canon Rebel dSLR as well as my trippy little Sony Cyber-shot point & shoot. Other than a college course in b/w photography, just seeing something that calls out to me is my 'field experience'. Unexpected items sometimes just seem to say "Hey...snap me!?" Each trip to New Orleans usually sees me finding a 'focus'. One time it was cracking/foxed paint on shutters, another trip it was doorknobs. Usually a gorgeous plant/flower finds its way into my memory stick.
Thank you all for your support.
