K Cam Photo, Beautiful Buffalo, NY Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement
My mother and I bought my first camera at KMart; a Focal 126 for $7.77.
I have an extensive library spanning 41 years, unwittingly documenting local histories and progress, mostly from Central New York State and the Finger Lakes Region, Western New York and the Buffalo Niagara Region. I'm a Great Lakes gal for sure. Often, weather - especially extreme or unlikely conditions - draws me to the images I shoot. My eye tends to find positive and negative spaces, shadows, lines and high contrast.
Gardening has crept into my list of hobbies over the years, so I shoot more and more close-ups of blossoms and all that comes with a thriving garden: critters, butterflies and birds.
The collection is huge, and I expect to add images regularly. Thank you for visiting!
