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.

  1. I just love B & W and really enjoyed these, My favourite is the close up of the leaf but the children shots are just way too cute.

  2. Jan really nice work... I especially loved the people photos. One small direction, if you don't mind is I might have cropped some of the images example would be first one. You want to place the main subject the in most prominent position. either crop in camera or in post production. But this would be my choice if you like it better this way , that is obviously your choice

  5. I’d be hard-pressed to name a favorite; they are all fabulous. But the leaf did capture my eye in its uniqueness. You are good!

  7. My favorite two are of the baby looking in wonder at the toy or whatever the object is in front of him. The second is the leaf closeup with the sparkling lights around it. What were those lights? Fireflies? Little fairies? See where my imagination goes. You are so talented.
