In 1972, I came to San Francisco for one semester to study film and photography. Eventually, rock & roll (and the cost of film & processing) pulled me away from shooting, but not from the area; I came to Half Moon Bay in 1989.

After a many-years long break from photography, I bought my beloved Canon EOS and carry it just about everywhere I go.

My preference is to find some entirely wonderful scene and stay out of the way of it getting into my camera, especially if I can find a detail that I can isolate, giving a new perspective on the whole. I present the photos 'clean', using Photoshop only to buff out errant telephone wires and such. The pieces I have here represent a cross-section of the last few years' work; I hope you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes for a few moments.

After a many-years long break from photography, I got a little digital Kodak in 2005 and began to play with that, loving the freedom it gave me to take hundreds of shots and play with angles and framing. In love with the medium again, and with much encouragement from my husband, two years ago I made the move up to a Canon EOS and carry it just about everywhere I go.
