“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.”– Rachel Carson
I studied photography all through school, but found little time for amid the demands of an adult work schedule. Then the first pandemic lockdown in 2020 temporarily freed me from the industrial cycle. For the first time since childhood, I realigned my life with nature’s rhythms. With more time to spend outdoors, my long-dormant love of nature photography blossomed again, just in time for a move to Australia. Photography now gives me a way to explore this incredible antipodean world. Even within a suburban neighborhood, there’s endless marvels to discover, if I just focus!
The pages below offer curated galleries of my favorite images, updated regularly. For more pictures, and the stories behind them, check out the Photography posts on my blog. Don’t forget to follow the blog so you never miss a shot.
