ADDED NOTE on 4/29: This (#10 spot) photo marks the end of my 6th month in the Daily Community. I know there are gaps and many of my pictures are off as I have a long way to go. I am grateful to you all for inspiring me to take better pictures. This has been an unforgettable experience. Now it's time to take a break and take care of my family.

    Welcome to my site!

    I'm happily married with a wonderful family. Beside that, taking pictures is about all I think about these days. Life is good!

    Thanks for taking time to look and I'm up for any feedback to help improve my skills.
