You can break my heart, but never my spirit.

I've been shooting digital photographs since 2004. My best friend is also my photography and Photoshop guru, and I am fortunate to have learned much from him over the years.

I try to appreciate what is right underfoot here at home. There are little wonders everywhere, once you open your eyes and really see...and savor.

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity". ~ Dorothy Parker

You Are the Sense of Smell

You appreciate the smaller things in life that few people notice.
You notice subtle changes just as they happen.
You're the first one to know if the seasons are changing or if the cookies are done.

You love new environments, and you can recall all the places you've been.
You have a sharp memory, and you are often nostalgic for the past.
You enjoy traveling internationally. You have an easy time taking in a new place.

    Wendell Summerville says:

    "If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then her eyes are wide open. That may be a little over the top, but look at her work and you will see.

    In her stream you will find many beautiful images. But in each image you will see more than what is there. Without looking closely, you will see and get a real sense of feeling. Thats something special and really quite nice. Its something to aspire to.

    Thanks Thia."

    "I wrote this today to your stream: "Thia, you are phenomenal. You really do have your own style and you cannot be copied cause you are unique..." and then I realized it is the testimonial. Thank you for showing the way, Thiajmarie / Irene"

    "thiajmarie sees things that other people walk past. She does not supress her inner eye. Her gift is innocence in what she sees. Simplicity in her works makes a person notice it all the more. If I could see half of what she can see, I would figure myself gifted. I have known many professsional photographers over thirty years who would wish to have her talent in her three shorts years of shooting. She will only get better -- she can only be great.

    Everything that we truly own is inside us and anything else is merely a mask. The things we add to ourselves are diminutive."
