For years, I have been an amateur photographer. I have traveled widely to over 40 countries on six continents plus many of the world's islands . My camera, a Canon SLR EOS, has been a constant companion. To me, the most intriguing aspects of photography are composition and color.
Now that I am a retired professor of nursing, I have more time to hone my photographic skills and move into professional photographt. Subjects of interest include animals, birds, butterflies and flowers as well as photos of people (especially children and families), places, and the sun and moon. However, I am an eclectic photographer, drawn to a wide variety of subjects.
Through my small business, Laurels by Laurel, I market photo cards, postcards and prints to local shops as well as on the internet. I also do custom work including portraits of families, children and pets as well as CDs/DVDs of travel pictures.
