My very first interview, done by Willow Manor

1. Your photos are fabulous. How did you get your start in photography and what kind of camera do you use?
Thanks for the compliment...I was ten years old when I got my first camera, we lived in the country, so nature surrounded me. So I photographed everything from closeups of leaves to my brother and sisters. From that point I knew I was a visual artist, and my tool would be a camera. After high school, I went to art collage to study commercial photography, I tended to break a lot of rules, but I had been doing that my whole life. I have used many different styles of cameras, before digital, my favorite was a Hasselblad, which I adore, but my work horses now are Nikon's, in our new world of digital.

2. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Wow! What a question...I am only 41 years,I guess to use the gifts I was given, to make the world better, in just a small way.

3. Other than your loved ones, what is your most treasured possession?
I feel I don't posse anything, things are things....but i truly adore the gardens that surround my home, for they have been my best teachers in life.

4. Which living person do you most admire and why?
My sweet mother, for she showed me through her life, all you have to be is you.

5. Before blogging, what, if any, was your main mode of personal expression?
I have been journeying for the last twenty years, and of course through my photography, the greatest part about blogging is I get to combine my feeling, and expressions together and share creatively.

Here's the directions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview
someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask
them five questions.

This is my first visit to your blog - found via Willow - I've just been interviewed too!

What you say is so interesting - like the Anais Nin quote too.

I'd like to visit again when I'm not tired - it's 1.15 am here - so I can look at your beautiful photographs.
