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.

Sea Gulls


The only crow I saw all day.










 I had an absolute blast watching these guys, on the ground and in the air. Lew loved chasing them and Randy loves watching Lew laugh. As the birds soar through the sky, hurdling themselves down into the shallows to grab what ever it is that they saw from so high, it is hard to imagine that they will not crash. I always get apprehensive watching them do this. The are not the worlds prettiest birds and they have a reputation as scavengers, fishermen fight them over bait fish, even so I have always been intrigued. The ones we have around here are largely Herring Gulls (the ones the fisherman hate) and the California Gull. When I would be at the docks in the town I was raised in, the gulls would follow the boats in and literally swarm the fisheries and canneries for all the scrap.
