I fell in Love with Photography at an early age:

Discovered my Beloved Dad's Black + White Europe Photos from the 1950's.

This was taken from a moving truck!  I think I inherited his Photo Genes.

Then fell proper in love when I got my first 35mm Camera.

My Treasured Linda McCartney Books ...

Saw a show of her Film Prints in the back of a local Photo Shop and she blew me away.

Since then, I have aspired to honor and document life like she did, with pure emotion, sensitivity, and joy.

In this Blog, I hope to share my passion for Photography, the images that move me, the words about my passion that inspire me. 

And yes, I know I am not the most technically proficient Photographer. I know there are many, many more who create more amazing photos then I.

I will never have the most top notch gear or Photograph all the wonderful places and people that others do.

But these words by Grace Coddington comfort me:

 ' I love when it goes soft and even sometimes it's those movements, there's a little blur and things, but I don't know, everyone seems to like things pin sharp these days, I think it's a shame. '

It's between the soft and the blur that I've found my muse.

Here's to many more years of the in between.
