|Imagine my surprise, no it was really shock, when during a
physical exam while living in Arizona, the doctor says we need to redo the EKG because we believe there is a scar on your heart. That is an indication
of a silent heart attack. How could this be possible? I have always watched what I ate. I exercise regularly. I
do not smoke. She said there is nothing you can do about the genes you are born with. Oh my, that's it.
Over the next months, after an angiogram, further tests, a relocation to Colorado and careful monitoring of all activities, I have been given the go from the
heart doctor here to do anything I want to. That is when it hit me hard - I truly have been given a Second Chance. I love
the mountains of Colorado and have often thought I should try to capture their magnificence in a way far better than the pocket
camera I carried around. Thus - the impetus behind Second Chance Photography.
In mid-2009, I picked up a Canon 400D (Xti) from craigslist.com, took an initial class at the local community college and the rest is
history in the making.
