    Bronze in People / Children

This is my great granddaughter. She and I share a sense for the dramatic, we understand each other, and she is comfortable in front of my camera. This was taken at the end of the visit and when she climbed on the fence I knew she would speak to me with those eyes.

It has taken me quite a while to consider myself a photographer.In my lifetime I have been daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, empty nester, widow, and partner.Never in those years was I a photographer. Frankly, except for family memories, I didn't have time. Some might, and have said that I am stubborn.I prefer determined.When I had time later in my life to learn new skills, I decided to be determined about photography.It has been a Life changing,challenging new skill. I have always seen stories in the world around me,now I have a way to tell them.
