I started this Blog as a hobby back on July 30, 2008. The pleasure I get out of this blog is hearing from other people who have left a comment on my site and going out to shoot the photo's. I have really loved hearing from military people who were stationed at Camp Lejeune or on one of the ships. I do appreciate all comments, good or bad. Also I enjoy being able to get out and about to take pictures of things and events that catch my eye and posting them up here.
I worked from the age of 15 till I retired at age 63 and thought that was enough. It wasn't that I didn't like my job, just the opposite, I loved it and had so many great people to work with. But I was just plain tired of working and started seeing too many people my age and younger passing on and there were a couple of things I wanted to do before I did.
After retiring from my job I moved down to NC where my heart has always been since 1964. I currently live in Charlotte but did live in Camp Lejeune, 1964-68, where I was a Navy Corpsman attached to the 10th Marines. It was at that time that I knew I had found myself a home here in NC, but things changed in my life and I did go back to Michigan, against my better judgment, and lived there until 2007.
So now I get to do a little traveling around the countryside and love taking pictures of life in these different areas. So many neat places to visit and so many great people down here. So me and my trusty Sony Cyber-shot (That tells you I'm not a pro) go out on photo shoots from time to time and what you see on my Blog here is what I have seen.
July 2010: I finally upgraded my camera to a Kodak Z981. Still doesn't make me a professional but will give me a chance to learn more with a little more advanced camera and with a miracle shoot some better quality pictures.
