I drove truck for 16 years of my life. Many times during my journeys I felt the need to take pictures of things but could not take my hands off the steering wheel for safety sake. Now I'm not driving truck and spending my time looking for those things I lost out on photographically over the 16 years I drove truck. I have alot of catching up to do. I bought my Canon last year in December and thought that winter would not produce the pictures I wanted....boy was I wrong! I'm actually looking forward to it again. If you fing my photos unique and something you would like in a larger size...let me know. I'm working at doing things more on a professional basis since my income doesn't come from trucking anymore.
