I’m a huge fan of taking pictures.
I can be found walking around, with either my phone or my bigger, more noticeable Canon Rebel, taking pics.
If I see a view I want to remember, I’ll reach for my phone (currently using the iPhone 14 pro) and snap two or three pics.
Sunrises, sun reflecting across water, a family of ducks walking, and just about anything with trees, oceans, or running water…
are things I tend to get a picture of.
When carrying my Canon Rebel with a little extra zoom, I love catching people mid-laugh or smile and then snap a couple of pics. Any facial expression expression will get my attention, which coincides with my other jobs, providing mental health therapy and working for a non-profit board.
I’m attaching just a few pics here, and will continue to upload them to the site in the fineartsamerica.com link below.
So far, I’ve enjoyed uploading, and then ordering, from myself. I ordered a notebook with a picture of the landscape listed below, which then became the cover of a small notebook I use for personal notes.
I’ve also enjoyed making a greeting card or two with a sunset or sunrise over water. I could then add in a little statement of my own, knowing the sunset on the boat ride from Naples would be meaningful to my high school graduating cousin’s grandfather, who lives there
