    Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

    The picture to the left is my favorite picture. It was taken on an overcast spring day on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Although I usually take pictures with my iPhone, I used a Nikon D3200 DSLR for this picture.  Not bad for a novice.
