About

I am an amateur photographer.  I love photographing all the different seasons in Central Minnesota where I live.  I enjoy the flexibility of a digital camera versus my old 35 mm camera.  I have always loved taking photos but hated waiting for the pictures and the cost of developing the film.  I love that I can take hundreds of pictures and choose to develop only the ones I truly love.  It allows the opportunity to try things in many ways until you get something you like.

  1. Great photo!! Have a nice weekend!!

  2. I enjoyed looking at your pix. What camera and lens do you use?

    • Thank you. I use a Nikon D3100 with either the 18-55mm lens or the 55-200mm lens. They are the lens that came with my camera. I would like to get some more lens but not sure which to buy yet.

      • I shoot with a canon rebel xsi
        I recently bought a prime 50mm 1.8 lens and I am really enjoying it. My dream lens is a 24-70mm but right now saving for a flash.

      • I’ve been researching a lot of different lens. I looked into a lensbaby for macro shots about a year ago but with two daughters in college. Funds have been tight. I looked at the canon rebel at the time I bought my Nikon. It was a toss up at the time of which to purchase because I didn’t know much about photography at the time. I will have to start looking at lenses again with one daughter graduating next month Yeah! Three kids done one to go!

  3. Hello:

    I work for Buchanan County, Iowa and we just launched a new web-site (www.buchanancountyiowa.org). I came across this image online and was wondering if we could have permission to use the image on our new site? We think it is a great picture of our former train station.

    Thanks much,
    James

    • Hi James, I don’t know if my first response came through or not because I was on my phone. You are welcome to use the image on your website or in any of the county publications. I may have some other images from our travels that day but I usually choose my favorite to post. Glad you liked the photo. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner…On the road. Thanks, Jeanne

  4. Thanks, Jeanne! I would like to give you credit for the photo if you don’t mind your name being listed on our site. If that is okay, please provide your last name.

    Cheers,
    James

    • Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner James. We were out of town. My name is Jeanne Peterson and I am reside just outside the small town of Upsala, Minnesota, population 424.
