Check out my new blog:
Cooriander Sez: Opinions About Photography.

and my website

I had a film camera many years back -- it was a Pentax SLR, ME Super, that I enjoyed but did not quite master. Recently, I got back into photography and decided to jump into digital. I'm spending time now trying to find my own style.

I am a mother of 3 children ages 4, 6 and 8 and I also have a fun day job (: My children are my inspiration and a challenge since they run (away) and move around so much. I love learning about photography, its process and technology. If you have any questions about my images, please feel free to ask.


PS. I am behind on flickr email, adding contacts & general flickering due to RL - so I wanted to apologize for that - but hopefully I will catch up soon (:
