I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

OFF LEASH

“You may not agree, you may not care, but if you are holding this book you should know that of 
all the sights I love in this world — and there are plenty — very near the top of the list is this one: dogs without leashes.”  ~ Mary Oliver, Dog Songs
 

Whidbey Island Double Bluff Beach 
35 mm, no leashes, picnic food, three dogs, people I love
and pure abandonment. . .  

“Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?” ~~Mary Oliver, Dog Songs 
 

have an amazing week,
