My passion for photography started during my childhood when I purchased a camera from McDonalds. I started by taking pictures during family events. The most exciting thing about taking pictures of the kids. They are adorable. Over the years I upgraded to other cameras, including digital.
I have been told by people I can take too many pictures. However, it’s something I really enjoy so I can’t resist. The fun part of photography is you never know what you’re going to capture until the event happens. Like the man that is popping a wheelie with his bicycle below. This picture was taken during a walk in Toronto on September 20th, 2003.
During my travel to California in March 2003, I was at Universal Studios. Walking around in the shopping area I have seen this very cool sign.
For me taking interesting pictures it is trial and error. The more I practice, the better I get at it. While going through my photo selection for WillyG Lounge, I notice how my skills are improving over the years.
After taking pictures for several years, I learned I have the most passion for nature photography. I discovered this when I moved to Nova Scotia in 2009. There is allot of beautiful parks in this province. This all started from a bus ride I had to take to Bedford. Along the highway, I have seen this interesting park. I kept saying to myself one day I need to go there. So on October 17th, 2009, I went to Bedford & Sackville Connector Greenway. You can observe how beautiful this park is from the photo below.
After this trip I have explored many other hiking trips in my local area. For my vacation in November 2012 was my first time doing a big hiking trip. I went to Cabot Trail at Highland National Park that is located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. This is the trip I bought the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS. I knew this would be a perfect camera for this trip as it haves 50x optical zoom. As an added bonus, this camera records full 1080P HD video. Below is a picture of one of the mountains.
I will share photos and videos of this trip at a later date. Since the purchase of Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, I have been pushing myself to do many hiking trips since this camera can capture beautiful pictures and videos at any distance. I think the reason why I like nature photography because it is very peaceful.
Before closing, I can’t forget about the penguins. This picture was taken November 14th, 2012 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I’m looking forward to sharing many of my exciting adventures as time progress.
