About me

I am returning to serious photography after a 3-plus decade absence. Back then I wanted to exhibit in art shows, had a few photos in small shows with good response and was doing b&w and color darkroom work. Have forgotten everything I ever knew it seems but am bitten again, not sure how it happend. I am a writer in between projects and I think my creative yearnings reached out for something to fill the breach until the words started flowing again. Now I plan to write a blog and post photos, before my novel picks up again, which will take front and center. However, after learning a bit about my Panasonic FZ20 have gotten a few good images which have sparked my excitement for visual expression. I am so grateful I found this site because the photos inspire me and Paul and Chip in particular have been so helpful.

Note: Thanks to the helpful advice I've found here, I've traded in the Panasonic for a Canon Rebel XT (350d) and as predicted, I'm in love with it.

    Hi Helen,
    thanks for your comment in my profile.
    Yes, I live in San Francisco as well. It's a great place to take pictures, there are so many sides to this city and California is amazing :-)
    Hope I see more of your pictures soon.

    Helen, I know neither you or young Rohan.
    However I was about to post a comment on young Rohan's profile, when I saw your inspiring comments.
    May I just say, that I was deeply touched by the advice to the young lad!!
    It is folk like yourself that inspire the young, rather than offer negative feedback.
    Bless you, the world needs more Helen's.
    A humble but happy snapper

    Hi Helen,

    I would like to thank you for your comment on my picture (the red wall) It's a nice feeling to know my picture can trigger something in somebody other then me :-). I just started posting on FC so this is a whole new (learning) experience for me. Hope you're enjoying taking photo's as much as writing!
