I am wife, mom and grandma and enjoy all three parts of me. What started out as a hobby became a full blown passion for photographing anything. I am involved in 10 microstock sites and 4 online card stores where I sell my images on greeting cards. I also sell my cards in 3 local stores. After many hours and sticking with my dream, I am finally making decent money.

    Wow- Hey it’s Big Red-and a beautiful capture. I was so excited to see this light house last Spring when we went to Holland for the tulip festival- I had been wanted to capture a red light house. Isn’t she grand!

  • Cheryl… “Big Red” has become a dear and close friend to me. She stands strong, guides the mariners home safely, and has so much history within those walls.

    What a clean, clear, crisp image, Maria! The colors are striking and the scene is so inviting. You ought to make postcards of this for the local Chamber of Commerce to sell as souvenirs. Very PROFESSIONAL!

  • Bonnie… thanks for the idea and the high praise.
