I just loved doing it. It started in high school when I did it all the time, disappeared for awhile and then came back when my wife and started having kids.
I love taking pictures. I was the photographer for the high school newspaper and I ended up working around a lot of news photographers. When our daughter was born and then our son, I filled the walls in my office with pictures of the kids.
Now we have four grandkids. Three born and one still in utero. Digital cameras fed my habit. I not only like to take them, I love looking at them.
Telling a story through video fascinates me. I can do it with my iPhone. High on my to-do list is learning how to edit the video clips.
How many digital photos and video clips do I have? More than 20,000 and that number is growing.
