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.

i spent a good deal of the day reading a new book on exposure
playing around with my camera a lot 
the dog had to go to the vet 
and the rain, well it poured so hard he
didn't want to get out of the car 
he charmed them all however, once inside 
and he is in fine health
Kacy cut my hair
and tonight i think there might be popcorn for dinner
