I'm positive that Alex 21.gif ambaker would have LOVED to see his wife, Sharon, take up his equipment... after he's spent so much time... teaching her so much about photography... her by his side... for... YEARS of discussion!

Will you welcome Sharon... with Alex's equipment... to our little family?

She's shy and doesn't think that she can compete in our little world.

I say... that... we all start from... "nowhere" and then... we all get "a DPC average" upon our first entry.

After that, we're just competing against ourselves!

Come on, Sharon!

Join us!!

You'll do great!

Alex is a keeper... what a great sense of humor he brought! And... WHAT an encourager to me and others!

We all love him.

And... we'll all love YOU very soon, Sharon 31_N.gif slbaker.

(You already know that I already DO!!)

Please just pick his camera up... and point it at something.

Click.

There's your starting place. *grin*

I would be great to have another Baker in the bunch. Come join the fun. And don't worry about "competing". Even if you don't want to enter the main challenges, there are ongoing side challenges for every taste. And there's no scoring or judging involved :)

Hi Sharon. Welcome. I am proof in the pudding that anybody can play here. No awards. No particular skills yet. But these fine folks keep me shooting and entering and they even give me motivation and kind comments from time to time. So hope to see you around.

Seriously, would love to have you join us. Alex would be pleased. And bemused. :-)

Hi Sharon. Please come join us!
It's a great excuse to get out and look at the world, capturing that little bit that you happen to see, and sharing it with others.

Hi Sharon!

I think it would be marvelous if you came and played with us! It's the typical neighborhood playground. We have a good time, we grouse and complain, you make some fast friends, you meet a couple of bullies, and it's a lot of fun. Jump in, try the swings first, then the merry-go-round (we have the old fashioned kind that they've banned from school playgrounds nowadays. Watch out for the teeter-totter -- those things can send you flying!

HI Sharon. We are one big family and welcome you into the fold. Please come and play with us. Welcome aboard.

Welcome!

Hello Sharon, welcome to our group. I 've not been a member for long and tend to be shy asking for help. Even though this does have challenges everyone on here is willing to share their skills and tips for every type of photo you are drawn to. There are many brilliant photographers on here. I started out by checking out the photos then the (how did they do that) page. There is so much knowledge in this group it's like having a photo class right at your fingertips any time day or night.
We welcome you with open arms.

Welcome, Sharon. I've been not competing here for more than 7 years. But I have improved - a lot, and the folks here are great. I can't wait to see some of your work.
