      Journaling reads:
      Forty-five years ago I would have never thought I’d learn to love photography. My dad was a professional photographer. He owned a studio where he shot portraits plus he shot special events like weddings and took photos for the local schools. He and Mom also sold cameras and equipment and developed black and white film. I worked for them after school and during some summers. But I had no interest in learning photography. God forbid that I had to operate a camera in manual, as there weren’t any cameras that were automatic. Now, I wish he was still here so I could learn at his side and he’d know that I finally appreciate what he did. I started out taking photos of my children that ended up in a box. Then, I discovered scrapbooking and I have been a voracious picture taker since then. But, now I want to become a photographer – not to make a living, but to capture my family’s everyday moments and special events. What is more precious or important than photos of my grandchildren growing up? I want their children and grandchildren to look back at their albums, sense their personalities, and get a glimpse of their souls.
