I'm here to add to the collective pot of things that might make someone's day a tiny bit better.

I have no rules about flickr. Add me or not, comment or not. If I added you it's because I like your work or I like you or I was in a good mood that day.

This obsession began in July, 2004 when I got my first digital camera.

I haven't geotagged all (okay, most) of my pictures, but sometimes the location is a tag.

Some places where my shots are used:

Photo of Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant:

The Bee and the Butterfly:

A jail in Rhode Island

One of 16 Train Station Photos that Will Inspire You
and the same shot in a blog post entitled Art Where You Least Expect It

Sand Wasps with Stink Bug prey on the Meadowlands Blog

This picture of the caterpillar of the Wavy Lined Emerald Moth also known as the Camouflaged Looper is all over the place including a Swiss women's fashion magazine of all places but most recently was featured here:

Another shot of three of the same critter as above is used here:

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal.
-- Lord Byron

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
-- Robert Frost

The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
-- John Muir

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order".
-John Burroughs

An' I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
Never said I wanted to improve my station
An' I'm only doin' good
When I'm havin' fun
An' I don't have to please no one

An' I don't really care
If ya think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change
An' I'm never gonna care
'Bout my bad reputation

Oh no, not me
- - Joan Jett

    "All Fantastic Images they only are apparent
    Propagated just by hope and desire to share it."

    "The Hopester pretends to be a warm, human generous person whose photographs reflect her vision of the world. And as a wise writer once said, be careful of what you pretend to be, because you are what you pretend to be."

    "I met Hope and I am happy I did. Hope is very very special. She is clever funny charming and contributes a hell of a lot to the warming of the heart. She's fun loving and upbeat. She's seen it all, and her wisdom helps carry anyone close to her right through a tough day.
    You can say pretty much anything to Hope and she'll just give you that warm wonderful pretty smile and then knock all the teeth you have right down your throat..... So, you can say 'almost' anything to Hope."

    "What more could you want from a photographer? Beauty, style, wits, elegance, personality, the ability to tame gigantic turkey legs... Hope, she has it all. Oh, and her photographs are awesome, too. Glad she's on my list. I love her work."
