I am just a woman in Southwest Virginia with a Camera, I Love Photography & Spending time with my family & friends…

My name is Mechele, I have been married for 26 years to my dear husband Buster, I am a mother of two young adults,a son,Roy & daughter,Heather and two lovely Granddaughter’s, Brittani & Katie,I am an amateur in photography. I’m always striving for that next, perfect shot.

I am a child of the 60’s & a survivor of the 70’s & 80’s

I have been inspired by many artists…..but most of all God!

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

I am a photographaholic. I can never have enough. I always want more. I do not want to be cured…..

I can also officially say I am a published photographer since some of my photos is being printed in the “Seasons of Smyth County” Book which is due to come out here in the Fall of 2011. And currently have one photo hanging in our new hospital
