Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

Japan Favorites

I traveled to Japan in 2004 with my husband and 2 year old daughter to visit family.  Because I held my little one in a carrier on my left, I lost use of one hand most of the time.  I adapted by holding my camera away from my face and shooting off my hip, arm stretched high, behind the back, etc. with my Canon Digital and point and shoot.  It became habit forming and expanded my photographic style. So, which of these are one-handed or two?
