People often ask how and why I got into photography, so here is the short and sweet version of the story...
I received my first plastic, point and shoot, 110mm film camera as a kid (it was very pink.) I started taking pictures and never stopped. I learned as I went along, trial-and-error style. Eventually I worked my way up to a slightly more advanced camera (which is not pink.) Today I use a Nikon D300 and edit images with PSE8.
I have found that even when I don't have a camera at hand, photography has taught me to seek beauty in the every day and in between. I am reminded that the God who made all this! also made me, and loves me. A love like that has to be shared, and I'm so thankful I can share it with my camera.
