I am a female business professional now indulging in photography as a way of relaxing after a busy day. I live in Hawaii and hope to share some of the beauty and unusual that interests me. I am just an amateur and any help/tips are welcome.

On a personal note, I am over the hill, overweight, and sometimes overconfident in my career, but just a fledgling in photography. But I find that it relaxes the stress away and makes me appreciate even the tiniest morcel of nature’s beauty. I live alone with two cats on Oahu for the past 15 years but prior to that I lived in the Carribean, Scotland, and throughout the United States. Enjoyed writing in College, but now hardly get past the idea or title page. Driving seems oddly to stimulate my creative brain, and I think of all these great ideas or phrases to put in some essay or short story about my life, but with no way to write it down. Alas, the story of my life, Almost could’ve been. Oh, well, Now I am here. Perhaps I can finally string together those untitled chapters into something worth reading. Please Help!! So far the RB seems like a great community. I have a blurb book of many of the images here and more. Flora Fantastica Hawaii at Blurb.com

Breast Cancer

A very dear friend and absolutely beautiful woman recently died from breast cancer. She had first discovered it at age 18, underwent radiation therapy, chemo, and radical mastectomies, which left her severly disfigured. She had implants for 15 yrs and felt very good about herself. In the early 90’s she decided to remove the implants and go Au Naturelle. She was still a beautiful woman. S…
