Hensy Wadsworth Longfellow

I found this beautiful gravestone in Arizona, USA. the words were really touching – it was a child’s grave. I always feel so deeply for the parents who have lost a child.

I use a Lumix Panasonic point and shoot camera

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
