Nice Kara!  Hopefully we will start to see some 'Spring' here in the Northeast in the coming weeks!

Someplace I really want to visit, but it will only be in the wintertime. During any non-winter season in the south, the risk of undesirable pests, bugs and creepy-crawlies is more than I am willing to risk. But 'Old Car City' is on my short list!

In February 2014, one of Gerdi McKenna's friends wrote an email requesting a photoshoot for all her friends as she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months before. In solidarity with Gerdi, her friends decided to follow suite and shave their heads as well! Here are some comments by her ...

I think the photos say it all! I couldn't be this creative, but wish it HAD been me!
U.K. photographer Andrew Whyte took pictures of a tiny Lego man taking pictures every day for a year on his iPhone, and theyre all tiny treasures.

Sunrise over Lake Harris, with +Tim Chickering. We're listening to the osprey and red winged blackbirds, watching diving ducks and little herons fly over the water. Have to take these opportunities when you can, and remembering them when needing a boost.

Thank you to +John Balboni and +Alexandra G. for their recommendations. Sunset @ Howard Park, and the lovely wildlife opportunities puts this location high on our list for a return visit - maybe even this weekend! with +Tim Chickering

Happy St. Patty's Day! There is more than 6" of new snow this morning, and my favorite restaurant isn't serving Scotch Eggs this year (sigh). The schools and Federal Government are closed, but my employer isn't easily deterred. Hoping to find a pot 'o gold or something else to turn this day around asap!

Saw the rainbow last week, minus the pot. Sorry, Angelika. Wish there were some magical creatures to help with snow removal this morning. Apparently I wasn't doing an adequate job, if I was accurately reading hubby's non-verbal signals this morning!

A class act. Wishing more parents, teachers and mentors were making this kind of difference in more kids. Thanks to those same folks, in the trenches for future generations.

Outstanding image, and I'm proud to know the photographer, personally ;)
 
Good afternoon,

Ever since I visited Fort Desoto Park during a five day photo workshop with Maxis Gamez a few years ago I've wanted to return and photograph birds at that location. Kara and I arrived on Friday afternoon and were treated to some wonderful evening light. Without a doubt one of the avian superstars at this park are reddish egrets. This is one of many photos I took of this very beautiful bird. 

Nikon D300s, Nikon 600mm, 
f8, 1/1250sec. ISO:200

The requisite Florida travel photo has now been posted. +Tim Chickering and I are exploring some new places this trip, and have not been disappointed yet!

If you are in Tarpon Springs, check out the Parthenon Greek restaurant. I had an excellent flat bread there!

Introduction
Who me? I don't really like talking about myself...
Bragging rights
I love to learn - just nuts about it. School was IT for me! My paid profession gives me the opportunity to share some of the stuff between my ears by being a supervisor, trainer and mentor. I am so fortunate to be married to my best friend. We are so perfectly suited for each other, it's uncanny. Thankfully, photography is a passion for both of us - and we get to do it TOGETHER!
Work
Occupation
During the day (paid), I work in a doctor's office, medical imaging is my specialty. After hours (evenings, weekends), hubby and I are photographers. So, that makes me a picture-taker by day, and a picture-taker after hours. The irony is not lost on me!
