Welcome to Long Hollow Photography!

Can a girl have too many hobbies? Obviously, I don't think so. When that 50th birthday appeared on the horizon, I realized I needed to get moving on things I had been putting off.
So I started a blog for my writing, Long Hollow... I started taking writing classes at the community college... I wrote the first draft of a screenplay and began working on a novel... I started playing (at) the drums... and I started using my Nikon.
I've always had a camera close at hand, but it's only recently that I've become a full-fledged addict. I blame my friend Jillsy... and I thank her. She inspired me to snap more and invited me into her 365 FlickR group, where I've received even more encouragement and have been inspired to learn more.
I decided to start this blog and devote it to photography - a place to post my favorite photos and share links and information about photography.
Got any suggestions?
Oh, thanks for stopping by!

  4. Well, welcome to the party.
    I have a similar experience. As I turn 50 later this year, I am also re-thinking how I spend my time. And photography is at the top of my list.

  5. So great to have a hobby like photography. I started my blog because I wanted to get more into my writing. I need to take some college writing classes like you. I am inspired.

  6. I love being the one doing the inspiring! yay!
    I encourage you to take the classes - they always pull more out of me than I think I have. Love it!

  7. Lovely pictures - just dropped in from South Africa - saw you on Pete Grassow's blog.
    PS. I started a autobiography at age 66 called "The Road to Mission" (stuck 2 chapters on my blog) so there is hope for you writing many stories and taking plenty pictures. Blessings Herman.

  8. Herman, thanks for stopping by and for the encouragement on my book and photography! I glanced at your two chapters (I'm supposed to be working on my book right now... ) and it is truly inspiring! Blessings to you!
