St. John’s Newfoundland by Lyndon Keating
I’m Lyndon Keating from St. John’s, Newfoundland. About 4 years ago I bought a point and shoot camera and began taking pictures. I’ve been teaching myself as I go, learning from my mistakes, and treated myself to a dslr. Advice from a couple of experienced photographer friends of mine has also come in handy. I learn new things everyday. There’s a lot of beauty to Newfoundland. It is a great classroom.
Throughout most of my working life I have done just about everything, from baking to driving. Up until a couple of months ago, I was a steel bender. You put sheetmetal in a bending press, grab the handle and lift. It required a good eye for angles. Backbreaking work. But recently, my photography has sort of taken off . I had my first exhibition at a local art gallery. I got an award. I’m honoured to be here on aamora. No more steel bending for me, I hope. A career in photography would suit me just fine.
Here’s a link to where I won a photography prize. And I’d be pleased to have you look at some of my work on Flickr. I’d sure welcome any comments you might have, and will be looking forward to seeing all the great work here on aamora. And any time you want to come up to St. John’s for a visit, I’ll share a few glasses of Screech with you and show you around. The icebergs come by in June, if you’re planning.
