You take ABSOLUTLY beautiful photos! I have Envy! I have always wanted to learn photography, it is on my list with the many other things I want to learn and do.

Oh, thank you! It's just something I've always enjoyed doing. When I started gardening, it made me ramp it up a bit. I love photographing flowers, birds, insects, etc.

Do take classes if you want to! But even if you don't, just get out there and take oodles of photos. Experience is a GREAT teacher! That's how I learned.
