Passing Obsessions

I obsess, I blog, it passes, I find something new to obsess about.  It's the circle of my life.

A little bit about me... 

I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids area and have lived here all of my life.  I studied photography briefly at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, but found that assigned tasks and special processing techniques aren’t really my thing.  I haven't the patience.  I’m much more interested in the capturing a moment in time.  The taking of the photo is what I love best.

I walked away from photography after college and didn’t really get back into it until digital photography started to really hit its stride a few years ago.  I worked mostly with a Sony point and shoot model until February, 2006 when I got a Canon Digital Rebel XT.  Since February I’ve taken about 8,000 photos with my XT and I’m having the time of my life.

I love West Michigan and I get a kick out of showing my own unique perspective of it to the world.  I take very few shots of the traditional symbols of the area, preferring instead to focus on the little details of our surroundings – things that you will rarely notice unless you stop for a moment to really look at what’s around you.

Wanna see?  Many of my photos are available for viewing in my Flickr account.

Enjoy!
