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.

The Wild Game Park

Randy and I took a road trip with our grands earlier this month. We went to the Game Park in Bandon, Oregon. After spending a couple hours there we decided to travel on down the coast to Brookings which is where I grew up. I was so excited to show the kids "my" beaches, we had a wonderful time. While there I broke another camera, guess my photography is a little on the wild side. This time, I set it on a shelf in a restroom with lens completely extended for Zoom. It slipped right off the shelf and onto the concrete floor, now the thing is a bit sideways. Randy half fixed it for me and I was able to use it for a bit longer. Guess I really need to get my camera fixed. When I got home I discovered that between the camera I was using and Randy's we had taken over 1500 photos. It has taken me awhile to cull them out and get them ready for show, and even then I will be doing 3 if not 4 postings of these. It was an absolutely fabulous trip, I hope you enjoy what you see as well.
This first posting will be large and full of animals. The next will be of animals as well, then we will move on down the coast to the beaches. There are a couple from a stop for breakfast, near the ocean.
