Welcome to my site! “From My BackYard For You”.
My name is Carlos M. Verestín, I’m a 65-year old self-motivated photographer. In 2005 I started photography, but my Fibromyalgia Syndrome cut me short and put me in bed for 3 years. Being bored every day with chronic pain in my body I made the decision to buy a new camera for my hobby, (someone robbed my old Canon PowerShot 560), and to keep me busy and see if this would be good for my body and mind. I got the EOS Canon Rebel T6i with the idea of learning how to operate this digital camera. In 2015, I began taking shots through my bedroom window but I had no luck, so I set a bird feeder on a tree in my backyard facing the bedroom window. I took photos of birds eating and flying around the bird feeder from my bed. After a year of self education, I learned how to use this new digital camera, my practice really paid off. I motivated myself to get out of bed and take more diverse photos. By 2017 I collected around 6 to 7 thousands images of things I saw as beautiful. I was out of bed for 18 months, but it didn’t last. I opened my collection for sale at the Historical Market Street in Roanoke Virginia, but 2 days standing on and without making a sale, the chronic pain sent me back to bed for 3 days. My wife Consuelo said that in the future she will be open to help me sell my collection at the Market place in Roanoke on Sundays, but I had another idea…
Well, here is another way to present you “From My Backyard For You,” my best nature and urban collection, from old and new barns, birds, buildings, landscapes, macros, foods and much more to see. It would please me a lot to know that my photos are tying together a look in someone’s home or made presents to friends and family.

I hope something I made put a smile on your face. “My First Journey,” first nature collection out “From My Backyard For You”…Today!
