Description Early April '08 some very strong storms came through Little Rock. Many tornadoes touched the ground around Little Rock, one in fact cause some damage with trees in the direction of the large lightning bolt. I live in the Riverdale area and have a great view of the Arkansas River and the bluffs across. Every now and then I try to get some lightning shots, rarely can I get any before the rain starts.
Michael Troeger, Little Rock Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. I am an Intern Architect at Wittenberg, Delony, & Davidson Architects, Inc. in Little Rock. Have been working and living down here since May '06.
I have a really great close group of friends who have introduced me to many new things and people and they have made these past few years in the Rock very enjoyable and I cannot thank them enough for it.
So I've been interested in photography for a really long time, but I hadn't made the commitment of buying some good equipment until about August 2007. Since then I've pretty much taken my camera everywhere with me (to the dismay of some of my friends). It is really fun to learn new techniques and look at the world differently. It is quite similar to the way I was before Architecture school and after, just looking at life differently. I am purely an Amateur photographer. One of my friends has helped me out a lot. About the same time my brother has made the leap forward in equipment as well, so we are both having a good time learning and moving forward, although it seams like we aren't moving forward very quickly yet. I love looking around at all the interesting work people have on flickr...it really helps get my creative juices flowing. Keep up the good work all, 'peace and happiness forever'.
