Happy Birthday!

I'm 55 - for the record. Turning 50 did nothing for my photography; being, as you said, an artificial milestone. The real milestones have been hanging around other photographers with similar intentions, but better skills. Lee Carmichael, Matt Magruder, Les McLean, et al; met through APUG and/or at various workshops (you know who you are ), have been incalculable influences.

However, had I met such people 20 years ago, my ego and relative immaturity might have not let the influences "take", if you will. So maybe being over 50 really has made a difference in that respect.


50 is the new 30 ... :o
