Carol Christopher, Martha's Vineyard Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement I began my interest in Photography long ago when my father passed away from a brain tumor. and I inherited his 35mm minolta. Although I never really did much with it, took mediocre shots but I enjoyed it. I took it to Fenway Park with me one day and it just was too old to do the things I wanted to do with it.I purchasted a new camera, and Olympus SP550UZ.
I began to take some really nice pictures at Red Sox games, out of my love for the Red Sox went to Florida and got some very nice pictures .
I love to kayak and while in Florida wanted to spend the day my Dad passed away with Gods Earth.I rented a kayak In Bokeelia Florida and went down the Jug River Creek into the Calusa Wildlife Bird Refuge.That was all it took to draw me into wanting to capture Gods World with my camera.
Some of my most enjoyable moments are taking pictures of wildlife from my kayak floating among the peaceful salt water marshes on the Island of Martha's Vineyard where I currently reside.
