I am an amateur photographer with no training whatsoever. I have loved taking pictures since I was a child, although back then I used to blink my eyes and pretend to take a photo, since cameras were too expensive for me to own one. The iPhone has been such fun for me; I can shoot a photo whenever I have the urge, which is usually most of the time. I love the Hipstamatic app because it can make an ordinary scene look dramatic.
I'm also a mom to two wonderful girls, a mostly retired semi-professional singer-songwriter-guitarist, and a pediatric anesthesiologist at the University of California San Diego.
