I'm married to the CyberGooch www.cybergooch.com/ and aside from the fact he is my partner, lover and friend, he is also my favorite artist. I (not so recently) inherited his old Sony DSC-F717. I shoot whenever I can. Our son has also picked up on the family tradition and won "best of show" in the youth category at the fair. My Brother in law, Brent Alexander (a fantastic photographer http://brentalexander.com/ ) recently told me I was using a camera from the dark ages. While this may be true, I find it works for me while I'm still learning the art. I wish I had more time to spend viewing the photos of others as so many are inspiring and challenge me to try harder.
Thank you for offering critique and advice. That's why I'm here!
