I've been taking photographs continuously now for about 15 years after taking it up again after my kids got older.
I love to be out with my camera. It is my eye on my world. I love the way it frames things, creating compostition after composition - I know when it's right as soon as I line it up and click. It's very rarely the second take.
A buzz goes through me when it's right.......! The same is true with portraits and with weddings (though I haven't done one of those for a while - but you never know....).
