I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Beauty in my Life: Take the Time to Notice; (it is all around.)

Murals of Springfield Oregon and the local bus station.

While taking these pictures of the station; I was stopped by a bus driver; She informed me that I couldn't do that. The look on my face must have been utter shock. She continued and said. "it's okay' just stop." I know I was standing there with my mouth open; Her last reply was,"that is considered suspicious behavior." Really? I had a camera in open view, I wasn't hiding a cell phone and snapping off shots, I wasn't being sly at all, didn't know I needed to be. The customers at the station didn't look at me weird, like I shouldn't be there, I was obvious. Made me paranoid for about a minute, I walked to my car shaking my head. How can an over-weight, middle- aged lady be suspicious. Thank you terrorists, you've made our tiny town paranoid.
