Photography has been my hobby since I was a teenager. I think I have received more cameras, lenses, cases, and photography books than clothes as gifts over the years. Last Christmas, my husband bought me another camera, this time a Sony DSC-HX1. I have taken great outdoor photos as well as action shots with this camera. It also takes an awesome sweep panoramic photo, as you can see from my new blog header.

Yesterday, he found a photography class that he thought I would like at the Chicago Photography Academy which I will be taking this winter. It got me thinking about my hobby again and I thought I would share some photos that I took this summer. Let me know what you think!
