I've been playing around with photography since 2001, but I didn't get serious until 2007 when I finally bought a digital SLR, the Nikon D80.  I now have a Nikon D7000 and a couple of lenses and gadgets.  I'm just a hobbyist, shooting for fun, but I try to do my best.  The highlight of my hobby came when I had a photo published on the cover of the "Cowboys & Indians" magazine, the March 2010 issue.  I've sold a couple of prints too, but that's not the point.  I shoot what I like for my enjoyment.  I hope you enjoy them as well!
