BIOGRAPHY
"To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle"( Walt Whitman-Miracles) Hello to you all, I just joined this group after I lurked around for a while. My decision was very much influenced by a deep passion for traditional photography. I'm not a professional photographer but I did run sort of a side business back in the 80 when life was pretty tough in my native country Romania. I did weddings, family portraits, some documentary and nature shots all in B/W. For obvious reasons I had to take a 10 years break from photography after I emigrated to Canada but I cannot take this off my mind; I don't even think I want that. Last spring I started to invest in equipment and took some pictures throughout the summer (see my gallery). Please let me now what you think. I'm impressed with the standard set for this website and very grateful to the people behind it who made possible for all of us to share and enjoy PHOTOGRAPHY. Cheers, Mihai Costea
