Have lived on the Mendocino coast of California for almost 29 years. I have sold some photos, so I guess that makes me a freelance professional? :)I hope you enjoy these! My passion in art is drawing in pen and ink: birds. I have severe carpal tunnel that, while it seems to be getting better, has made it difficult to draw the smaller, finer details I was used to doing before - so in 2006, I took up photography and in July of 2013, the FujiFilm FinePix HS30XD and later, the NIKON D3200 came into my life :) - they are amazing pieces of equipment ........I have been drawing again, however, and am thankful! :) Exercises for the carpal tunnel nerve have helped *tremendously* thanks for a few folks here on WU! :) U NO HOOOO U R .... in addition to the CTS,in 2012, I was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder; a genetic anomaly that for some women, hits hard with the natural hormonal changes of life.... so I get out less and less often. In May of 2014, my partner and I bought a house on an acre out in the forest.... so a lot of my photos will and have been, of our little place.... in October of 2014, my partner and I are getting married! :) He is a literal answer to prayer.... As a former wildlife rehabilitator (1986-2003), I frequently will receive calls to rescue wild birds - there are a few shots of these in my gallery, but I prefer to catch and turn in to a local vet or another rehabber, or catch and release, as the case may be, without a lot of stress to the critter by taking photos of an injured, scared animal. In my life I have also been a naturalist for a local nature center and have led nature hikes to identify area plant life as well as wildlife. It is from this perspective that I enjoy sharing my photos of the same, not having had the pleasure during my short stay at the nature center, but loving it all nonetheless. I think WunderGround is a lot of fun and have been enjoying this site tremendously - meeting other photog's from all over the world is one of the best - but seeing their photos! WOW! :)Be sure to visit my website - launched on 09/09/09, called Sunrise Sea Glass! Click on my website link to visit
