I am not a photographer but I do enjoy taking pictures. I simply capture pictures of my family most so that I have visible memories, but also as a means for grandparents to keep up with the changes going on in the lives of their grandchildren here in Ecuador! Not only am I not a photographer, but my camera is not top notch either. I am not complaining, it suits my purposes just fine, but the pictures don't always have the best clarity. This is not an explanation for why I am not a good photographer though!
That being said, I have some friends who are fantastic photographers. You can see some of Becky's photography and that of others at http://kaishon.blogspot.com/. I have another friend, Ashley, who is just starting out in photography. You can check some of her work out at http://the-coupe-ecuador.blogspot.com/ . I still am participating in Sweet Shot Tuesday and encourage any other blogger out there to dive on in!
