Thanks so much for your visit to my flickr page!

I'm no longer contributing to Getty Images, but if you are interested in commercial licensing for any of my work, please contact me directly and I will be very happy to help you with that!

A little about me... I'm the queen of clutter, and am quite disorganized, which you should see by my sets :) I really need to work on some of them that have changed over the years, but most of the stuff is properly sorted.

Too lazy to break out the tripod, almost all of my shots are handheld. I prefer to shoot what I see and not set up the shot or add special lighting. Available light, although difficult at times, is my favorite shooting condition, regardless of the challenge it presents.

What you'll find here is purely amateur photography, and that's fine with me. Occasionally I get a little artistic but for the most part, these pictures are just my life -- and whatever is going on in it and around me at the time. Flowers, sunsets and cats, too ... yikes, a Flickr nightmare!

Yes -- we've moved again! My husband and I are now residing in Neotsu, Oregon, which is at the north end of Lincoln City. In August of 2015, we left Menifee, California, where we moved in 2009. We had relocated to Palm Harbor, Florida, from Huntington Beach, California in September 2005. Life is an adventure -- hope you're enjoying yours!

    "I love Peggy's photos because two of her favorite topics are also mine: Baseball and Jimmy Buffet! Her ability to capture both is greater than I could ever hope to achieve. More importantly, though, her photos are fun. You can see she truly enjoys life and any photo she posts has the ability to brighten spirits. I'm so glad that I've gotten a chance to consider her a friend."

    "I have appreciated Peggy’s photos for sometime now. Be it her frequent travels with her husband to exotic locals; her love of flora and butterflies; Florida Spring training with the Major and Minor League Baseball teams ( sorry darling, I can’t tell the difference :), or her experiments and expertise with the magic circles she creates from her beautiful photos. She’s a rare breed, Peggy. Both an exquisite photographer AND human being. Cheers!"

    "I met Peggy here on Flickr even though she is a Floridian like myself. I can see through her photos that she is a fun loving type of gal and always right there to help you when you need her.
    Peggy came to help me BIG time in the "Photos to Smile About"group when I need her the most and she has not stopped yet.
    It is a great feeling to be able to call her my best friend...Love ya Peggy and keep on bringing those awesome photos..."

    "Peggy has certainly posted lots of excellent photos to Flickr, and I have posted really great comments on some of her photos, as well as post some to my Favorites. For any groups she does have admin duties in, she is doing an excellent job in those groups, including the Pansies And Violas originally started by steph.A (Stephanie Allison). Peggy has even posted really great comments on my photos. :-)"

    "Peggy is one of the loveliest, most genuine people I have met on Flickr. She started one of my favourite groups Literary Reference in Pictures which has a harmony and diversity that is quite unique.

    Peggy's photographs give us an insight into her world, her delightful pets, her garden, beach and friends. Through pairing with quotes and poetry to make us think, to make us laugh or that leave us moved, her work has an extra dimension makes me look forward to all her new work.

    I have particular reason to thank Peggy for her kindness in giving me a Pro account. Flickr has brought all sorts of new people into my life and I am very glad that Peggy is one of them."

    "Peggy takes incredible photographs of some of my favorite things (cats, flowers, sealife, bugs, the beach, and Southern California)! Her photos are incredibly colorful and portray a life of sun, sand and fun. I think I want her life! LOL! I love her eye for detail and her compositions are delightful. I can't wait to see what she puts up next!"
