My husband and I honeymooned on Harbour Island back in 2002. Since then we have been back three subsequent times because it is a favorite destination for rest and relaxation...not to mention fabulous food and scenery!
Just some of the beautiful creatures we share this world with.
Belize, Central America
Ambergris Caye has been a destination on two occasions thus far. Located off the mainland of Belize one can partake in some of the best scuba diving found anywhere, or simply relax on any one of its numerous beaches.
The natural world around us...how can one resist wanting to capture its beauty at every turn.
Of course I would love Vancouver. Who wouldn't once they have visited? I rediscovered the city back in 2006...and regained my citizenship! I am never at a loss for scenes to capture; whether downtown or in North Vancouver where I lived as a child.
Orvieto is an enchanting Hill Town about an hour from Rome in southwestern Umbria. There is something to behold around every corner and down every passageway.
I wanted to be an architect when I was young, and it's what I started studying when I went off to university. Architecture still speaks to me wherever I travel or at home.
As with master painters of the past, sometimes a still life will do.
Sometimes you need to get close to your subject to make it more interesting. And sometimes just a hint is all that's needed.
Ahhhh, Paris. I was fortunate enough to live in this fine "City of Light" for six months in 1995. I will never tire of visiting Paris - or France in general.
Paris in Black and White
The first time I saw Paris (not to be confused with the movie The Last Time I Saw Paris) was in December 1992. I bought a book while there published by Hazan entitled Atget Paris. I have always loved Eugène Atget's work and fell in love with this book...all 785 pages!
Even after so many years having lived on the East Coast, this is home to me. The better part of my youth was spent in Oregon in the Willamette Valley in Corvallis. I hope to be lucky enough to one day call Oregon home again and continue to explore its beauty.
Shadows and Light
This is where my love of photography gets its start. Black and white images that grab hold of your attention. Tonal quality, shadows and light. What more can a photographer ask for...
More Black and White
One day I will begin the arduous task of scanning my black and white negatives from years ago and choosing images I feel are worthy of printing. But for now, with my digital cameras, I always shoot in color and later decide whether I will process the images in black and white or color for a final print. Sometimes it's clear that the image should only be printed in black and white (or monochrome), as is the case, I feel, with these selections.
Folios and Books
Folios are intended to be displayed, as an alternative to being hung on a wall. Each folio is approximately 8 ½" x 11" and includes three signed prints in a particular series, along with its corresponding Colophon page. Of course, if you still have wall space prints can be framed as a series or individually if desired. All materials, including folder, are archival. Printed in limited editions of 25 per series. Series shown: Abstract Alleys.
In 2016 I self-published my first small collection of black and white images entitled My Vision. It is available for sale either by contacting me directly or through www.blurb.com.
