The Girl Behind The Camera


Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution. ~ Ansel Adams

Sitting on a wall in Siena Italy taking pictures for this blog.

About me:

If I could do anything in this world I would save every innocent life, I would say I Love You until my face hurt, and I would take a picture so that I could preserve the memory.

I love too many things to list them all and don’t hate enough to bother mentioning them.

I was born and raised in Reno, NV.  I moved to Oxford England with my husband in 2009.  My hobbies are photography, yoga, reading, walking my pup (he is 6 but he is still my puppy) and hanging out with the people I love!

About photography:

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember.  In fact I can’t actually remember how a camera first ended up in my hands.  I do remember getting a camera for my birthday, probably when I was 8. Since then when I see a camera I pick it up and start taking pictures.   I took my first photography class when I was studying for my bachelor degree at University of Nevada Reno.  Photography had nothing to do with my degree in business and I didn’t really have time for it, but I wanted to take an actual photography class while I was still part of the university.  Since then I have learned mostly through exploring and playing and I have had the pleasure to take a class or two while here living here in Oxford.

About this BLOG!

Yikes! 356 day of pictures… 12 months recorded…1 year to look back on. I am so nervous, yet so excited, to go through with this crazy idea of mine.  I love the fact that it will push me, focus me, and try me.  I am not sure of what the goal or point of this is, but I know that I will grow from it.  I will either grow personally or through my photography.  It is a commitment to a hobby, a love, and a HUGE window into my life.  I am putting myself out there to be judged, commented on, and …

I hope you will join me for the fun, the excitement, the growth and, sometimes, the pain.

  1. Great idea, lovely photos.
    It will be interesting to follow what photos you find through the seasons, and when the year is finally up, if you stop beacause it’s become a chore, or keep going because it’s given you, and us, source of enjoyment.
    Thanks.

    • Have you changed the header picture ? … or did I just not notice the beautiful Oxford skyline shot before ?

      • I changed my theme. This theme allows me to do so much more and I get to have one of my pictures always displayed at the top. It’s the new Twenty Eleven theme. Thanks for noticing.

  2. Hello! I’m on a search for fellow photo-a-day bloggers, and I like what you’ve done with your project – especially the architectural photos. Would you be interested in a blogroll chain linking to other daily photo blogs?

  3. Hiya,
    Hope your’re well, just sending a few smiles your way incase you’re not and letting you know you’re missed.
    See you again soon,
    🙂 😀 🙂

    • Hi! Thank you for the concern. I am on holiday and just now getting to a computer. I have tons of pictures to edit and post and hope to be back up and running regularly soon. Thanks again!!!!
