The Photography Network - PictureSocial

I just wanted to say how great it is to have found this site and to be amongst all of you and y our talents and wisdom. Thank you all so much for your warm welcome!  Im new to the world of photography and have so much to learn. Ive loaded my basic collection of favorites, that I took with just a simple point and shoot camera. So this will be my starting point. I may not have the skills yet, but I have the heart and soul and desire to share in this world's beauty. In sharing my excitement about this site with a friend, she paid me the ultimate in compliments.  She said:  "Your pics are a gift to this world.  You have a job to do here because you show such beauty in what you see and we cant all see this on our own.  You provide the window which allows us to view the world in a gentle, warm, and amazingly  beautiful way."  This is what photography is about for me. In a world that can sometimes have such sadness, I believe in my heart, there are healing aspects to the beauty we can find and share  with our cameras.  :)  Please feel free to check out my pics, and share any advise you would like!

Jon I just looked at your pics. . . Wow!  In so many of them I had to do a double take because I couldnt tell if they were paintings that looked like photographs, or photographs that looked like paintings.  Either way you look at it, they were all just amazing!  Now thats a crazy talent to be able to do both!  Really beautiful!

Hi Jon, thanks for the welcome and for the compliments.    Im glad the pics brought some memories from home for you.  Oregon is definitely a wonderful place to live when you are obsessed with photography!  Where did you guys move to from here?  I guess there is always something wonderful to photograph though no matter where we go, huh?
