About windchimes1


Hello My name is Chrissy and I am married and a mother and grandmother. I am retired and have taken up photography as a hobby. Living in the heart of the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts,there is plenty of interesting subject matter to photograph. I have discovered that taking pictures can be very addictive, so my camera is always by my side. I love seeing photography from all different areas of this country and the world, and appreciate all comments on my own pictures. This is a wonderful community and I am so glad that this site is available to share my pictures and learn, and interact with those who I now call my WU family.
