I have loved taking photos for many years and after retirement 11 years ago I began to spend more time with my cameras. I live on a beautiful lake in northern Mn so have a canvas right out my door to inspire me. I have traveled a bit and love both Italy and Oaxaca, Mexico. In addition to photography I love cooking and best of all spending time with my family which includes 5 incredible grandchildren. I have three books that are devoted to that family.
