Abandoned in NC

DH and I have enjoyed a lovely couple of days meandering around the Blue Ridge Mountains, from Saluda to Asheville across to Boone and Grandfather Mountain.

Wonderful abandoned treasures to be found amidst the sparkling Spring Greens and stormy skies.

Getting Creative


Images shot with the lovely Vik Tory, Gwendolyn and Ryan Hathaway ..respectively…
So much to do, so little time….
I have a bunch of editing to take care of – literally 1000’s of images which draw me in, but I also have to take care of “business” – which means keeping websites, sorting out the “shop” and writing tutorials for workshops and classes….

If only there was more time to “play” ……..

Alison - How beautiful,just stunning. A Mothers day treat OXOX M

Joanne Thieme Huffman - It’s an embarrassment of riches – that’s your burden for being so talented.

Dave French - It is an honor and a privilege to be acquainted with Gwendolyn!

~Gwendolyn~ - It’s such fantastic experience to collaborate with such a creative and talented mind as yours Marie!

Dave French - I am of course an eternal Gwendolyn fan and am also learning to appreciate the people she works with and very impressed with Maria Otero’s photography,et.al.

Pretty Women

Sadly the poor blog seems to be a bit neglected lately ….. time flies by working with our fabulous group online students for Digital Paint Works and various other bits of teaching prep – and of course some shooting and then lots of post processing…

So just a quick showcase of some recent images…. shot with Kristy Jessica, Zoe Celeste and Gwendolyn with varying degrees of post-processing, digital painting and creative shenanigans!


nancy donaldson - stunning!! every one of them!

Dave French - These are all very artistic and I love all of Gwendolyn’s works.

Alison - Perfect OXOX M

Some Catch – Up Of All Sorts…


A few snaps from the time that I spent in Germany with my Mother….

Followed by a wonderful photoshoot with  a Client, Jennifer…. the day after I got back from a marathon journey across the “Pond”!


Then a change of PACE… ha! To check out some Steeple chasing…


And to cap off the weekend…. a bit of  a walk in the  “Park” – South Mountain Park to be precise….


And a few snaps of OLD bits and PIECES along the way home….
