Thank you for looking. A photograph means nothing if no seen with your eyes.

 

I grew up on Long Island, NY. Picked up a camera as a teenager and got hooked.

 

Bought my first SLR in the late seventies at Arthur Avedon's Photo store in Southold NY. Mr. Avedon, a cousin of that other Avedon, helped me pick out a Minolta which put me out 300 of my hard earned dollars. But I loved that camera until someone dropped it from the mast of a schooner he was working on.....

 

Years later I picked up a digital, which led to a slightly better digital which led to a DSLR and I found my way to Flickr. It's been fun and inspiring, learning to see, finding my own way with the lens.

 

Thanks to all who stop by to take a look. :-)

 

I am honoured to be asked to do a small exhibit of my work. See It at : The Way I See It in www.flickr.com/groups/ministract/

 

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking - and looking.

 

-Brooks Atkinson, Once Around the Sun

bratli aka D :-) has been a good friend since way before flickr. We have shared many experiences together through several 24/7 wildlife cams and a National Geographic Forum. D introduced me to flickr and I am so very thankful On my one year flickr anniversary, I want to thank bratli aka D for introducing me to flickr. It has been an amazing . bratli is a great photographer. She is a master at the macro. I have been perpetually awed by her ability to capture the tiniest detail of light and form from her time pieces to her floral photography. She has such a wonderful touch bringing out the gorgeous character of her pets, Kleo and Bess and of her wonderful son. It is always a pleasure to see what bratli has posted each day. Thank you D, dear friend.

Bratli has wonderful slice of life photos. Check out her clock pics!! Her nature pictures are a delight because they show much she loves where she lives and what's around her. I also enjoy her comments and support. She's a great photographer and I love checking her stream for inspiration.
