Born many years ago, one of eight children (seven boys), I have lived a few lives and think mostly well lived. Hopefully a couple left to experience. I am quite and quietly retired in Martinez, California. After retiring, started taking walks for exercise and in my wandering along the trails and paths, I saw changing beauty with the light and sky, so using my iPhone I took some photos. Got a Nikon 5600 some months ago and am doing my best to learn how to use it. What hasn't changed is how blessed I am to discover and appreciate each day and the interesting world around me.
