Out my Back Door

They always told me 'you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl' and that is true of me. I grew up in the back country of West Kentucky, nothing but fields and woods out our back door. I spent 7 years in the heart of St. Louis, MO before returning to my home place.

I learned from childhood to observe and love nature, as I got older and owned my first camera, which wasn't the best one, I took pictures of everything, I just wanted to share the world around me.

I know understand and appreciate all the hard work that goes into getting that one photo, I share all my work and it has become easier with media sites. All walks of life from around the globe can see into my world, a glimpse at what I see or have seen.

I hope more can share their world around them so we can get a glimpse of the world they see.

I am off to find my next subject to study and hopefully capture a brief moment, memory or a tale a tell to others.

Thank you all for your comments, lovely places to take a walk!
And thank you, that is one of our many 'wild' cats we have that hang around our place. I was finally able to get a picture of him on the hunt for breakfast right after a heavy snowfall.

And another thing I like to look for on my walks, are the animals hiding and hanging out. Love to find a good spot by a river, lake or pond. :)

You have very nice cat photos in your portfolio!
Sometimes the nicest things are just around the corner. We only need to see it.
