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.

  • Thanks Arla! She has a mind of her own but a very sweet disposition. And full of character. Who knows… maybe she and Angel are distant cousins?!? ;-)

    The sleep of innocence, but from the description this may be deceiving! Your creation is completely lovable and carries the message so perfectly. Sandy

  • Trouble would be pleased with your comments. She always has a look on her face that feigns complete innocence, despite her characteristic antics… Thank you Sandy from both Trouble and me. ;-)
