The key to photography
is taking a lot of pictures
and knowing what you like
and don't like about each one--
then working to duplicate/deepen/expand 
what you like,
and stop doing what you don't like.

The mystery about photography
is learning to see what makes your little heart sing
and your little toes dance.

When you turn image selection
and composition over to your little heart
and your little toes, 
the magic happens,
and you spend your time going "Wow! Wow! Wow!"

And, some of them become photographs.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
