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.

A Look At My Photos from the Last Year!!

 This is Tristyn January 1st at 1 day old.



A frustrated man, May 
August: this is my photo Mom's name is an oops!!!:)

The above 12 photos are my favorites from the last year, one from each month. Not necessarily the best photos, but my personal favorites. 
the next few are just a reprise of some of my other favorites from the year.
Happy New Year!


Random street kid at the park with his kitten.
This one because it still makes me smile. I smile because I showed it to mama and she blushed. That is how sweet she is.
 There you have it. A lot of photos that I personally love in randomness that is me!

I have grown and changed over the last year, sometimes it show in my photos sometimes not. I take photos and photography a bit more seriously than I have in the past, I've started playing with software, I like the change I can make on some of the photos. I think you will see more of it in the future.
Love to you all. Jan


  1. I often notice that photographers save the best images for last ;) I adore the baby photos. They are very spontaneous. I've followed through your first flower images in your blog. Your macroshots are terrific as well as the portraits.

    Remember I asked you for an image I could use in my post. I would like to ask for your November and December pics here. Thanks :)

  2. you are a fablous photographer...lovely memories.

  3. thank you for that little stroll down memory lane ;-)

    my favorites are the squirrel in november, the baby looking at the kids on the trampoline and the baby who spilled the crackers on his face -- haha! they're ALL delightful!!!

  4. To be able to speak using images. Pure Genius!!!


  5. Your pictures are so beautiful, Jan...I love the one of the little baby spilling popcorn (?) all over! You are truly an artist! ♥
