The Beck Is Back

hello everyone!

(btw, post title is from my childhood. Mr. Hamill always said that as an announcement at his door whenever i went to visit his family at their home a block from mine when i was a kid.)

i am back from a WONDERFUL trip to Port Townsend, WA with a small side trip to Seattle, WA.

i will blog more extensively about it soon, but today is rather packed so this entry will be brief.

LOVED it. happy to be home.

learned a lot about photography from resident photographer, Mike and guest professional photographer, Mark. trick for me is taking my camera EVERYWHERE now, and also taking LOTS of shots. i found that snapping shot after shot even with my canon powershot camera (takes grand pictures, by the way) that i can get a few really nice shots overall. i need to master this one before i move on to a "better" camera with more zooming capabilities etc. i also have plans to take some classes in digital photography and photoshop.

have also been inspired to start painting again. we will see how that goes. no pressure, right?

ok, i'm off for now. here's a couple shots to enjoy in the meantime.

Welcome back - sounds like you were able to de-stress.

Great pictures - love the up-shot (?) of the building. I really need to start taking pictures of things other than my dog sleeping.
