So the great thing about a blog, and specifically a blog that is for the most part unread, is that if I don’t post for 6 months, no one cares. I can basically write whatever I want, although you will never find anything political here, because just no. But I do like to share about […]

This quilting thing…

So I said I would never do quilting. Because I guess when I was young, it was what old people did. I don’t know. I never knew anyone who quilted. No one in my family did that I know of. But then several people I ride bikes with quilt. And then Lea decided we should […]

New Year, New Things

So it’s 2019. Already. Next thing you know, it’ll be 2020. Doesn’t 2020 have kind of a science fiction feel to it? Or is it just me, being a child of the 1970s? Anyway, it’s only been 7-8 months since I’ve posted. New things are coming this year, though, and this will be my main […]

some photography : Fujifilm X100F

So I got a new camera! I upgraded from my Fujifilm X100S to the newer and much-improved X100F. I had a love/hate relationship with the X100S. It had a lot of good qualities but I just could not get to a point where I loved it. I loved the idea of it, but with practical […]

Valentine’s Day at Central Bark – Atlanta

For Valentine’s Day at Central Bark, we did some Valentine photos for the doggie day care kids, with all proceeds going to SAVE. So here are some of my favorites!  

more rescues!

Here are some of the rescues who weren’t at the Valentine’s Day sessions. These guys go to a vet that’s local to me, so I head over there when I can and grab their photos.

rescue dogs!

I started working with a new rescue Southern Animal Volunteer Effort (SAVE)  recently. They are just starting out and asked if I’d be willing to help and it’s been so much fun. Such sweet dogs. A couple of puppies and a couple of older ones. Here are some of the rescues. So so cute. 🙂 […]

thanksgiving in the mountains…yes, it’s january.

We got to spend Thanksgiving in the North Carolina mountains (and I WANT TO MOVE THERE) in 2016 (see? I can’t even say “this year” at this point). It was a perfect day – we were able to eat outside and it was great. I also had the opportunity to visit a waterfall or two […]

rocket the cat

I did a digital painting of Rocket, my daughter-in-law’s parents’ cat. He is a rag doll and is absolutely stunning. I did this from iPhone photos that my daughter-in-law sent me. We surprised the parents pretty good! I was happy to do it – I think it turned out well. 🙂  

2018. catch up. rethink.

Another new year. It’s here! One week in, already. I have been neglecting this blog, social media and my photography website for so long, but it always seems to end up like that, doesn’t it? This year, though, really seems to be the year where I either do something with all of the bits and […]
