Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.
My phone died last week, and won't have internet access at home for a month. So I will upload images when I find WiFi hotspots that don't block me for transferring too much data. This is a set of poppies from my wildflower patch before the deer and rabbits got hungry. I also have several time-lapsed videos of the poppies opening which I will post later.
