I've always been fascinated by photography, but it wasn't until I really focused on the use of digital cameras that I became as inspired as I am now.
I started off modestly, but as the number and frequency began to rise, my photographs became much more meaningful to me than ever before. Instead of random moments captured in time, they have become the very journal of my life.
In my mind each picture I take is like a piece of a puzzle. I know that many will do nothing more than help to build the overall picture or story, but every once and a while I'll find the piece that brings all the others together. That one picture that makes all the work and effort worthwhile.
My never ending quest for the "perfect" photograph has produced some great results. In this area of Dreams Of Drifting, I share with you, the visitor, some of my favorite shots from my collection.
My second digital camera with which I took many, MANY shots. In excess of 6500 actually. It was a Nikon CoolPix 3200. I finally killed this camera while taking pictures of people hydro-locking their engines by trying to drive through 3ft of water in front of my place during a flash flood. The footage was hilarious. Sure karma bit me in the butt in the end, but it was so worth it!
My now current "on the go" camera. I picked up this camera for my mom, and loved it so much, I waited until it became discontinued to buy it at a steal of a price. It's a Panasonic TZ1. Significantly larger lens than most cameras at this price range and great pics as a result. It really is the perfect all purpose pocket-sized camera.
My current "for serious" camera is my first DSLR, the Nikon D80. You can expect many shots to come...
