I’ve been out on a week’s worth of Picture Walks and haven’t had time to write a blog about any of them. Today, though, I woke up with the brilliant idea that maybe I could just do a ‘photo journal’—lots of pictures, not much writing. That way I could still share the pictures, but not spend hours and hours on the writing part. Perfect! And even though I’ve posted many of these pictures on Facebook already, I feel like a blog is less fleeting, more like a book– and that I’ll still be able to find it a year from now! Enjoy.

I am a 75 year old retired teacher with an avid interest in hiking and photography. I am not a professional photographer, but spend almost every day exploring the natural world, taking pictures and honing my skills. When I review the pictures I have taken, I love researching information about the things I have found-- and then sharing my results with others. The time I have spent walking in the woods (including 4 months on the Appalachian Trail at 68) has always been somewhat therapeutic. When I added photography to the mix a few years ago, it quadrupled the therapeutic effect! Opening pictures on my computer at the end of the day is like opening presents. There are always surprises! It allows me to see so many details that were not visible to my naked eye! I have learned so many new things about birds and bugs, reptiles and mammals that I never knew before--and I have also found, that when I share with others, I invariably learn something new!
