I have always loved taking pictures. As a youth I was our family's candid camera. Growing up I loved to document special events whether they were family or school oriented. That continued as a hobby over time, taking photo after photo. I was happily spending a small fortune in film and print photos. In 2008 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my husband was out of work, my photography became my escape and my distraction. I had all faith that everything would work out, but I needed something to take my mind off the storms. So I took long walks and photographs, lots of photographs. Everyone along the Dirt Road has grown accustomed to seeing me and my camera at any time of day somewhere along the roadway.
Just the other day I took advantage of a nice afternoon and a butterfly intent on finding sustenance.
