PLANT AND RAKE WITHOUT THE ACHE

Gardening is a great way to stay active and have fun in the sun; however, many people sustain injuries that could easily have been prevented with a little know-how.  Keeping in mind good posture and lifting mechanics while doing your gardening activities are essential.

DANI LYNN REDGRIFT
(DLR Photography)
"I cannot remember a time when I didn't take pictures, or that I did not carry or have my camera with me.  I have always loved the outdoors, walking, hiking, and exploring; bringing my camera along was a natural progression for me.  Photography is my passion and I often say that I see the world through a different 'lens' or a series of '4 x 6' shots.  I love doing macro's (extreme close-up photography), landscapes, reflections, old cars, barns and buildings; bringing them to life, capturing them from different angles with a different perspective."
