My photo hikes have become the highlight of my week. I get out of the house for a few hours to go where I want, and do what I want. The quiet and solitude is a welcome change of pace from what can be a humdrum routine of chores, and constant demands on my time and attention. I enjoy the simple pleasures of being outside and looking at the world through my camera lens. (Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4) For more photos, please visit my Flickr photostream or my 365 Project Page.
