Misty Mornings in Monterosi, Italy by 

Each of these misty morning shots were taken from the front yard of the old Italian farm house my husband and I live in. I’m still amazed over how the play of light and fog affected the colors and the look and feel of each of these images. My editing only involved cropping and slight adjustments to light and contrast.

My life as a global nomad (about 22 years) continues to influence my writing and photography. When I lived in Shanghai, I went through a sea change of sorts, resulting in a major shift in my writing (from fiction to memoir) and a great new love, photography. Currently my husband and I live in Garland, Texas, near our daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters.
