Photography, writing and publishing my books have been a learning curve.
I am a self-published author of 8 non-fiction books about travel, spirituality and philosophy.( I've also written a fictional and inspirational book about a fairy who comes to planet earth to share her perspective on both dimensional worlds. )

My father was a photographer who developed his negatives, hung them up in his darkroom and then printed the photos - using traditional methods of those days. We grew up in East Africa and my father took marvllous photos of the wildlife there - even when he went crocodile hunting! When we moved back to England, his love of photography continued.
I have lived in Switzerland for many years.
My travels to India, Thailand, Alaska, Hawaii, Greece in past years - were great opportunities for photography and sunsets - but at that time I was more interested in the experience itself.
My husband and I love to go on driving trips with our dog, and taking photos of scenery.
I very much appreciate your comments and critiques about my photos, thankyou so much for visiting!
