Hi, thank you for reading. Photography and writing are two of my favorite things so blogging is the perfect creative outlet for me. I started blogging in February 2009 and have written over 700 posts.
I’m married, a central Phoenix homeowner (I love Phoenix, specifically downtown), and a cat rescuer (we currently have 10…4 inside, 6 outside, with some other visitors…and have placed many others). I have a BA from Arizona State University. I volunteer at the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden now that I’m retired (yay!).
I made WordPress’s Freshly Pressed on September 26, 2011 with this post! And I made it again on March 29, 2012 with this post!! Nature is my favorite subject…birds, butterflies, anything else that crosses my path but birding and bird photography are my current favorite pastimes. I’ve had some photos chosen for Friday Fotos by Arizona Highways Magazine on July 24, 2015, October 9, 2015, October 30, 2015, December 11, 2015, January 8, 2016, July 1, 2016, October 21, 2016, December 23, 2016, December 30, 2016, April 28, 2017, June 30, 2017, August 11, 2017, November 3, 2017, and January 12, 2018. And for their “Moonstruck” album, on September 28, 2015:
Arizona Highways also has a Photo of the Day on their website. They have used 3 of my photos so far, on 1.29.17, 5.4.17, and 12.2.17. Those were all bird photos!
