I like photography so much because taking the pictures is just plain fun. My lovely wife enjoys helping me stage pictures, and because she is also creative a lot of the settings are great collaborations. Sometimes we just get in the car and go driving around, waiting for a location or an idea to strike. Taking pictures never seems like work, and it is always a mysterious surprise to see what shows up on the computer. Here we are at the beach last week, where we ended up soaking wet and laughing as we tried to pose teddy bears on rocks as waves rolled in. As I said, the perfect hobby!
