During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Sylvia this is totally awesome :), I love it.

  • Thank you Darcy! This is a friend’s favorite boat to see happily floating along Cape Cod Bay. So, just had to “Merry” it up for her. Thrilled you like the results!

    very sweet, different too xx

  • I’m currently in sunny South Florida on family business and most holiday decoration looks like this to me! But I’ll be back in New England soon enough for more traditional views of the season. ;-) Thanks Lynn.

    Oh I do & I wish I knew how to do that. Would you like to come stay with me at my house, Paul too of course, with my hubby & son & teach me :)

  • If you didn’t live so far away, I’d be right over for Lesson #1! But someday we’ll be have to visit the desert again… maybe in winter next time… so I’ll let you know when. ;-)

    beautiful job. I love how you did the text here.

  • Truly appreciate your comments. With care put into living and capturing moments, I try to honor them when adding personal touches. And I admit, finding the right lettering is far more challenging than I could have imagined! ;-) So pleased you like the results. Thank you so much Lynell! …Sylvia
