I started taking photos with my dad's Ricoh while on vacation in Cape Town, South Africa. Some of the photos, especially the landscape, came out beautifully and I just never stopped. I like taking nature photos, animals, flowers, landscapes, but love taking photos of my family, especially my 2 year old son. I'm currently using a Kodak Z650 Standard, very basic, but lovely photos! I tought I'd never go over to Digital, but it's so much easier and you can get to see the final product before you print!
