Roger provided the following statement:
“I can’t believe Marjie and I have been in Tanglewood for over 5 years now. How time flies. I joined the Tanglewood Art League shortly after we returned to our home in Tanglewood in the Fall of 2014. I dabbled in the arts, taking a pencil art class and doing some acrylics. But I began craving for my long-ago passion for photography.
After retiring and living full time in an RV, we found Tanglewood and fell in love with the park and people. I enjoyed not only the park, but all that we found here.
Nature shines here, from a plethora of plants and flowers and wildlife, to breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. I began to yearn for the capability of capturing this beauty. Then one day I found a 52-week photography class on line and decided to get back into photography.
I truly love taking photos; and with digital cameras, I get to see firsthand the results of my work – no darkroom needed.
My goal this past year has been to explore and photograph Tanglewood from nature’s perspective, uncovering what I believe to be its beauty. I’ve displayed the results of my effort to capture the beauty of nature in Tanglewood with my photo display in the clubhouse showcase. I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed taking and printing my work.”
