I am an amateur photo enthusiast, a member of Cranbury (NJ) Digital Camera Club and PSA. My work has been exhibited in several local venues. I use digital photography in an attempt to capture 'the beauty of life' and the 'passing of time.' I try to save the 'moment' or 'story' that drew me to take the image. However, sometimes I use Elements editing features to develop the original image into a new and different piece of work, and at times I am so moved by a particular scene that I will write free-form poetry to accompany the image.
