I am a 49-year-old parent of two children. I have a 18-year-old daughter, and a 20-year-old son. My daughter enjoys the usual things that a teen girl enjoys – music (well, she calls what she listens to music), reading, Leonardo DiCaprio and animals. My son has Asperger’s Syndrome which is an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, he likes his XBOX and chatting with people on Facebook, fast cars, playing his guitar.
Towards the end of 2011, I got into photography, buying a GE HZ1500 bridge camera to start as I didn’t know if it was going to be a fad or something I could really get into. After a few months though, I decided to go for it and brought myself a Nikon D3000 DSLR. Since then, I have brought a 55-200mm lens, a 70-300mm / Macro lens. a tripod, four zoom filters and a set of 28 assorted filters as well as a wide-angle macro lens. I have also been given a CAM-LINK TP2800 tripod, which my parents brought me for my birthday, and 5-in-1 reflector which I received free for subscribing to Nikon‘s monthly magazine. Most recently I have brought a macro extension tube.
My sister got me into taking a photo every day of the year. That way, you get to see what is around you, no matter how small. Due to reasons beyond my control, I have not been able to take so many photos. They are only occasional now.
I am sticking to writing flash fiction for now, which you can see on the page bar at the top, and I write some poetry as well.
I hope you enjoy the stories, photos, poems and other things I post. Thank you for taking the time to read.
