Pictures

For most of my life I have been surrounded by photography.  I remember my dad had a darkroom when I was young and I would watch him develop film.  I took a class my senior year that had photography 1 quarter and had some of my pics put in the yearbook.  I remember my history teacher was also the Jr. Varsity football coach.  He gave me a press pass so I could go onto the field during a game!  After high school I took an adult photography class and ended up with the same teacher my dad had when he took the class!

Now, here I am in the digital world.  I barely get pics printed, which is a HUGE issue for most people today.  But, I have a desire to capture Jesus in the middle of God's creation.  That may not make sense to you, but it does to me.  I have a great camera thanks to my parents.  But, i just can't seem to get out.

I admit it is difficult to see others do it, even make money at it. I am extremely happy for them, don't get me wrong.  Its just hard knowing that I have wanted to make it work for so long and just haven't been able to.

I did make a facebook page and a flicker page:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/journeythrualens/  or

So I guess that's a start.  Now I just need to figure out how to draw traffic to my sites and get out to take more pics.
