Retirement is the best

I retired, from a job I liked, at the end of October. I burned out after 21 years 12 to 16 hour days (this included a 3 hour round trip commute). Also working in an office is very restrictive.

I have spent the time since my retirement cleaning house, learning to cook again, getting ready for the holidays, and playing with my grandkids. I have not done much photography in the last 8 months, but the bug has hit me big time.

I want to thank Dreamstime for teaching me so much about the world of stock photography. I am learning to do vectors and will be able to spend time perfecting my skills. My husband and I will traveling while I take lots of photos.

I have 373 photos online and have sold $158 + without being able to spend much time on my art. Thank goodness that retirement will give me time to really be creative.

Nice pics especially of the kids. I think children are the best subject to click as they don't "pose"
