After being away for few months, I've gotten active again here in the cafe. What of the parts I really enjoyed is looking at the photos people have posted here, and at other sites. (like pbase). I would say the vast majority are better photographers than I am. You know what? That's ok with me. It doesn't matter to me that someone else is better. That will always be the case, in every walk of life. However, I just enjoy looking at great photography. Some of your images have really inspired me. Not to be better than some of you, but to be a better photographer, 6 months from now, than I am today. I simply want to produce the best work I can, and hope one day it will inspire others. Or..at least give them enjoyment when viewing my work. But most of all, I do photography for me. I love it...and thanks again, everyone for making me feel at home, and for sharing your wonderful images.
