Capturing life viewed through a camera has been so much fun as it has allowed me to discover the world of creativity. Photography has introduced me to  wonderful people, incredible venues, all kinds of wildlife and memorable signs, sounds and experiences that will be with me forever. It has opened my eyes to the beauty all around us, both big and small.

I'm often asked what I like to photograph most. I always find myself pausing slightly before I answer and I have finally realized that I can't say that I specialize in any one area. I have an unquenchable appetite for discovery and learning and I love challenging myself to try out new techniques, new approaches, new technology. The incredible thing about photography is that the possibilities are endless - whether on some fancy sojourn or in the confines of your own community. 

Photography is just one of many pursuits for me. I am having so much fun on many other fronts as well. I am a competitive swimmer and coach with U.S. Masters Swimming and I coach swim clinics all over the U.S. I also run an adult learn-to-swim program and swim clinics in my community.

I love pickleball (so addictive!), kayaking, hiking, bicycling, and an art form called Zentangle which I picked during the beginning of the COVID crisis where we were all trying to figure out what to do with ourselves. Check out my Zentangle gallery to see why that is also addictive. It's how I spend my time each morning over coffee. Hey, it beats reading the news!

Another venture during COVID led to learning piano and I now play daily. Somehow even with all that, I love our 2x daily walks with my husband and dogs and getting into competitive games in the afternoon with my husband (Spicy Farkel and Yahtzee are two of our favorites). It's a full and very satisfying life!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my site. I hope I have brought a smile to your face or made your day better with some of these images. Live life to its fullest!
