Thank you for taking the time to check out my little photography site. I have been a photographer for years, but now I find myself working in a library. It sounds strange, yes, but what I am doing is helping create digital archives. Makes more sense now. Right? On this site I'll share with you images, and stories about the people, places and memories that go along with these images. I hope you enjoy the time you spend here.


8/52 Sunday sunrise

This past weekend I was visiting my parents in Ohio. After staying up late talking with my mom on Saturday, I was less than amused to be awakened extra early by a Little Dog, who needed to visit the great outdoors in a big way.

It is no great secret that I am not a morning person. I'm sure was grumbling as I made my way out to grab my coat and shoes. That all changed as I passed by the window and I saw this most spectacular sunrise.



But, it was short-lived event.


7:18 am

Just ten minutes later the dawn was cloudy, gray and drizzly, but for a few minutes it was breath-taking. I so rarely get to see the sun rise from my own home. So I forgave the Little Dog for waking me up early. :)



Have you every had days where you wish you had just stayed in bed?

my Etsy shop is open for business

One of my goals for 2011 was to open my own shop on Etsy. Actually, it was a goal for 2010, that didn't quite materialize, but this year I decided I would really try to make a go of it. So a couple of weeks ago, I bit the bullet and listed my very first item, my "couples" photo. Within a week I received notices that the photo had been placed in treasury. ( I didn't know what a treasury was at first, but from what I understand it's a theme based collection but together by other etsy members.) How exciting!

Now a couple of weeks have gone by and I'm slowly adding more items to the shop. For now it's mostly photographs, but I hope to also include some of my hand painted silks. As with some many things, it is most definitely a work in progress, but it is a start. I'm very excited to see where all this leads.

You can visit the shop by clicking here. Please check it out and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear your feedback.
Thank you.



Again, I'm a little behind on Project 52, but since there are no rules, I'm giving myself permission to be a little behind. The last couple of weeks have been a little rough the Heis Household. Miss B. suffered a third back injury. Although this injury was not as severe, there were still many worrisome nights.

A little over a week has gone by and she seems to be doing better but we're still taking it day by day. Right now she needs lots of rest and time to heal.
