"The Frozen Maple"

  • Photography in various sizes and prices-matted
  • This picture shows my Japanese Maple tree that is usually filled with leaves of all different colors! However this particular Winter,it was sooooooooo cold, and the wind was blowing madly! It blew off all of the leaves and froze my tree solid. This picture shows knarly branches that appear to be ready to break! You would never think that this tree could come back...however come Spring,the tree is stronger than ever, and by Autumn, the colors are even brighter than before! For those of you who know about japanese maples, you know that the cold weather just locks in the sugars that help ensure bright colors by October! Mother Nature working her miracles again!I'm in awe!

  • Washington state is beautiful with all of it's greenery,clear blue skies,and waters,such as Puget Sound.There are however some things that are less desirable to some people,like the rain, and at times the harsh winter wind and snow!This picture was taken on my back deck where the chairs were witness to frozen icicles.

"The lone student"
  • "The lone student"
  • Color Photography | 5" x 7"
  • When it snowed in Washington state, sometimes people didn't get out to go to work or even to school. For those that lived on a hill, it was the worst; cars sliding every which way~ Of course then there was the die-hard lone student who decided to treak his way to and from school... This picture shows our hero,coming back up the good ole hill, going"home sweet home"

"Mr. Snowman"
  • "Mr. Snowman"
  • Color Photography | 5" x 7"
  • When I lived in Seattle, Washington, the weather could change pretty rapidly. Sometimes we would have a beautiful Spring where all of the flowers were in bloom, and in Autumn, there would be a myriad of colors on my maple tree... Winter was another story altogether! Some were harsh and windy, and more than once I got snowed in trying to get "off of the hill" I lived on, just to get to work... There were however many fun times too, as represented by " Mr. Snowman" that you see here. My neighbors children had a blast creating something out of nothing, and even dressed him up with their winter scarf....the little one said " To keep him warm!"...

"Pride"
  • "Pride"
  • Color Photography | 5" x 7"
  • They say " Proud as a Peacock" when they want to describe someone who kinda struts their stuff....well I guess this is how that person would look to another! I took this picture in Kent, Wa. on some private property that belonged to a friend of mine. He and his wife loved Peacocks and had the means and the land/space to just allow them to run wild and be free....so that is how I got this great shot! The "eyes" in the peacocks tail were most fascinating! The colors were brillant and captivating!

"Reflections"
  • "Reflections"
  • Color Photography | 8" x 10"
  • When I lived in Washington state, I used to love to go to "Earthworks Park" because it was absolutely beautiful with it's gazebo and bridges and water and flowers blooming everywhere you looked. There were so many great shots for me to get there. In fact, I will be adding a separate gallery soon just called "Earthworks" for you to enjoy along with me. This particular day, I was in a very introspective mood and so I took this picture of a bridge and water at Earthworks that I call "Reflections", as the water reflected itself and my own image back to me.

"White Horse Crossing"
  • "White Horse Crossing"
  • Color Photography | 5" x 7"
  • In Washington State, where I lived for over 1/4 of a century,I loved to take pictures of ordinary,yet unusual things; people and places. There were plenty of them there to take! One such instance was when I worked with the Burnstead family on a housing development called " White Horse Crossing". You may think that this picture looks like a white horse and his or her baby grazing together, out in the pasture;and that is what everyone thinks when they first see it, because there are live horses in that area of Kent.This infact is a statue and the wonderful artwork of a fine sculptor~ It was also was very popular with the local high school kids who loved to play pranks there every Halloween~ Let's just say that the White Horse had to be painted white a bit more than once!!

  • Going to "Earthworks" Park is almost like going back in time, because there is so much beauty there, and so many really practical things to enjoy;like the "Gazebo" that allows one to just sit and relax and take in everything that surrounds them. In this fast paced world, that is a real pleasure and treasure!

  • I loved living in Kent,Washington even though I started out a California gal. I was transferred there on a job offer with Boeing Computer Services in 1980, and never thought that I would adjust to living in the country, or in that cold rainy weather,since I had always lived in the bright,sunny City of Los Angeles with all of it's sprawling freeways, high rises, etc. It is amazing how being out in the country can actually help you to get back in touch with your roots and with the earth. I found that I got in much better tune with Mother nature and all that she had to offer. I saw joy in every picture that I took, even if it was just something common and ordinary. This picture was taken of my neighbor's horse about a year before I moved away. I still think of the farm, the animals, especially the cows that I became accustomed to seeing every morning. I miss them and now have a great appreciation of all animals, big and small~ My best friend still lives there, so I know I will go back, at least to visit and see if the horses are still there~
