I’ve loved photography for years… I was always the one with a little point-and-shoot camera on trips and vacations. Over time I’d take pictures of everything, or at least try to. I noticed that birds, flying, dynamic, fluid and graceful or watchful, cautious and meticulous, were just about the hardest pictures to make. I’d found that making an interesting, memorable and original bird picture turned out to be almost impossible! At one point I joked that I’d given up trying to do great bird pictures… that from that point forward I’d be happy with merely adequate bird pictures. I couldn’t really give up on constantly trying to improve my photography though, and that’s really what the name of this site is about.
