Link to My Most Often Favorited Images

Live in Montana – always have and probably always will. I have been serious about photography since I was given a “Kodak Brownie” box camera many years ago. My particular interest is wildlife photography and what you see in those images are wild and free critters in their natural environment. I am blessed to live close to Yellowstone Park where many of my images originate. I write also, having (again long ago) graduated from U of Montana with a degree in English Creative Writing/Poetry. Looking forward to meeting more creative and appreciative fans of the arts here at redbubble.

Quarter of a Million Views

I had not a clue when I transitioned to Redbubble to display my photography (and a few poems) some 5+ years ago; that it was even possible to get in excess of 250,000 views, but yesterday just that occurred. This has been a wonderful venue for exposure and for learning from others by studying what piques the most interest from the huge diversity of folks who visit the site. Thanks to each and e…

*Featured on Home Page*

Well, like most of you I was dubious that it would ever happen and was ecstatic to see the coveted (but understated) little notice in my activity list this morning. / My image; / The Magnificent Shining Freight Train / was featured on a homepage that ran in the wee hours of the morning in America and was gone before I logged on at 6:30 a.m. so didn’t generate much buzz – but what th…
