Thank you for stopping by!

 

I've been on Flickr since 2005 and didn't give serious attention to photography until the year before, when I discovered digital.

 

Some of my work is exactingly real. Other pieces are interpretations -- ranging from mild impressions to wild exaggerations. Every image I publish on Flickr starts with a photograph I take: my joy in the location...my personal vision...the memory of the moment I clicked the button...these are critical to me and my sense of art. Days, months or years after, I return to past photographs -- just because I made them. Suddenly I see a a "new" image and try to create it. The possibilities are endless.

 

I'm fascinated by so much, and this is probably reflected in my photography. I'm doing something with my camera, or photo processing almost everyday. My work cuts across many themes, subjects and techniques, as I continue to explore my personal vision.

 

Photography is an integral element of my life. It's important to me that images I publish or print are expressive, artful, and hopefully even tell a story. I'm very taken by light, shapes, tones, textures, monochrome, abstraction and impressions in general -- all somehow expressing atmosphere and mood. And, sometimes color or just plain natural beauty wins my attention over everything else.

 

After my husband, grown children, and dog Linus -- and photography -- I love to learn, and have many interests: various global issues, far flung travels, writing, computing, graphic design, lit and non-fiction, marketing, mushrooming. That's this year.....

 

Happily, my husband and I recently moved to beautiful, redrock-bound Sedona, Arizona, which will now be our one and only home. We sold our beloved Deer Isle, Maine vacation home after 20 summers there. I miss Maine already, but we want things simpler. In northern Arizona, we are just hours away from many of my favorite photo haunts ... I can jump into my 4-door jeep, throw in the husband and dog -- and the Canon 5D Mark III, Gitzo and camera bags. Favorite lenses: Canon 24-105 L, 16-35 L, 70-200 L, and my new 28-300L -- big but good and incredibly versatile.

 

I am gratefully past raising my family, working too hard in our healthcare IT business, and trying to prevent crows feet. Impossible.

 

I greatly enjoy the contacts I've made in Flickr and try as best I can to watch your work and comment regularly. I ask only that if you want to be a contact that you reciprocate with your interest and comments. I love words I can learn from, even if they don't say FABULOUS. Thanks to all of you who have shown your interest and encouragement.

I feel honored that I get to write D'Arcy's first testimonial. As a photographer, her work has grown immensely in the last year - both through understanding of equipment and mastery of light and composition. The work she has completed in the past few months is night and day with the images she originally produced when she began this foray into photography in 2005. I truly admire her dedication and stick-to-it-tiveness. As her daughter, I love seeing images of the world through her eyes - mostly because I've watched the entire world beside her for nearly my entire life. I'm having so much fun sharing our passion for travel and photography together and can't wait to see where her work will evolve next (or where we'll go shooting next together). :o)
