One of the things I love to do most is get out into nature. And since you can't (and shouldn't, really) always bring nature home with you, I love to take pictures. Plants, critters, landscapes; they're all waiting to get captured by the lens. And with the advent of digital photography, huge memory cards, and the ability to auto-focus, I find myself with lots of photos of wild things and wild places. They usually get dumped in a folder on my computer, and that's about it. But recently, I grabbed a few Recoup (like Groupon, but supporting a cause) vouchers for hardcover photo books from a company called PhotoBin, and spent a pretty fair amount of time looking for some of the better shots to print in coffee table style books. They came out pretty well, and I'm looking forward to sharing them with guests as they drop by the house. But now that I've gotten some of my photos sorted, I figure the Interwebs would be a pretty good place to share them as well.
