thanks, kathy. again, i just started last october. f got me a great digital camera with a high-powered zoom & macro funtion for my birthday. the good camera is the key. my point-n-shoot 35 sucked. i never used it.

it is v-beautiful where i live, so i practiced a lot. in short, yes, self taught at age 38.

if you like, i can email you some really nice pics of bucks county pa and my garden.

you too bill.
