Lulu by Ellen Cotton


Available to buy on…

If I could write children’s stories, I’d write one about “Lulu and the Muffin Man”. The “Muffin Man” is my husband! Lulu is a friend’s beagle who goes crazy every time she sees him, because he always gives her the crumbs from his muffin at the coffee shop that they walk to every weekend. Sometimes they bring Lulu over to our place before heading out to the coffee shop, and I can hear Lulu howling a block away! I captured this shot while she was waiting for her treat!
Canon SD1100; June 2010

Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.
