I've been Tagged!! Groan!

Tag, You're It!

This is a fun way to get to know other bloggers better. Kim, Living the Questions, tagged me and now it's my turn to tag others. So here are the RULES.

1) Each player must post the rules at the top.
2) Answer the questions in bold
3) Tag five people you would like to know better, go to their blogs, let them know they've been tagged and ask them to read your blog.

I like Hummus too. :-) I never knew you lived in Barbados! Interesting! I have always wondered how you got so heavily into photography. Did you take classes?

Hi Kim,

I started with a point and shoot film years ago when i went to Barbados, and have always been interested in photography, but never had the money for a camera until about 10 years ago.

I finally bought a film camera with lenses and thats when i started. However, film is expensive, and I didn't really reach my current abilities until I got into digital about 2 years ago.

I haven't done any serious courses, I did do a 6 week block couse to learn about digital - but thats it.

I learn most of my photographic skills from the Photographic Society of which I belong, and the two websites (community art) that I post to.

Cheers
Robyn
