As is my tradition each January, I have just finished posting some of my favorite images from last year in my 2011 GALLERY! My first selections included over 100 photographs but acting as my own juror, I edited the gallery down to 40.

The Finale

Day Ten The last day had come. I was sad but tired too and ready to come home. In the morning we went to Salt Creek tidal area at low tide. Walking on the slippery and jagged rocks was an interesting experience. The starfish, urchins and anemones took the day off from posing and the […]

She said that ‘all the photographer’s go there’! We followed some sketchy directions we found on the […]


Day One Back from an 11 day trip to Washington State, the task of processing my photos seemed daunting until deciding to just take it ‘one day at a time’. With a stop-over in Chicago, my husband Brent and I arrived in Seattle just before sunset on a Thursday. The air was cool and clear […]
