Say cheese!

August 19 is National Photography Day. The revelation is new to me, but got me to thinking about my love of photography (or at least taking pictures). It's a passion I had at an early age. I can remember having a pair of toy binoculars around age six or seven and pretending to take pictures with them. The funny part is my parents were behind me taking pictures of the same subject I was pointing at and "clicking". When the pictures came back I thought I might have been on to something.

Shortly after that I did get a legit camera. It had the flash bulbs that had to be tossed after using it. Then there was the camera with the flash stick that went from green to red after each use. Finally I got a Kodak Disc camera for Christmas one year. I took pictures of everything around the house.

High school yearbook
By the time I got to high school I had the chance to hone my photography skills and was asked to join the yearbook staff my senior year. It was a great experience I wish I could have started sooner in my college career. Now I stick to the camera on my iPhone to capture life's moments. Here are a few of my favorites.

Base hit!
