Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality is.

Summing it up! Snap! That moment is captured forever. 

Taking photos is on the top of my passion list. It sharpens your eye to really see the beauty and uniqueness around you. It's a privilege to record the true essence of life, as I see it. For me, it makes you feel something. I love paying attention to detail, that most people miss. It can be a fleeting moment that could never be seen again, and you captured it. Then you can share it with others, and that gives me great pleasure. 

 Taking photos reminds me never to take anything for granted.

I've been taking photos since I was a little girl, with my brownie camera. Film was all we knew, and there always that anticipation waiting to get them developed. Then came digital where there was no limit. Love how technology improved the process and the possibilities are endless.

I have plenty of photos, from desert sunsets, critters, city life and much more. Here's a sample of some of my favorites.
