I guess I’m really just a gypsy at heart, a vagabond, a wanderer, a nomad, a traveler…call me what you will, but I just love to travel, and always with my trusty companion by my side. No, I’m not talking about a dog, a friend, or even my husband…I’m talking about my camera! As much as I love to travel, so too do I love to document all the places I’ve been, and all the beautiful people I have met on my travels, so my camera helps me to do just this.
As well as being an amateur photographer, I am also an aspiring writer who has had several articles published in a number of different cruising magazines, so I have the added benefit of being able to combine my images with my stories, and submit them for publication.
I was born in South Africa but moved to the US in 1985, shortly after meeting my
husband-to-be in Death Valley, CA during my 2 and ½ year world travel adventure. We have lived aboard sailboats for the last 24 years, most of those years in Ventura, California.
Currently we cruise aboard our boat in Mexico for 8 months of the year, returning to the US in the summer to escape the heat and hurricanes of Mexico, during which time we either house-sit, rent or camp. As I said, I’m a gypsy at heart, but perhaps more so a vagabundo-del-mar these days.
I am currently shooting with a Sony DSC-HX9V, but hope someday to graduate to a DSLR ~ until then, my compact camera, oh, and my husband, will continue to be my trusty companion on all my forays into the unknown and unexpected!
Thank you for visiting my site ~ I hope you enjoy the views! And please stop by regularly as I plan to change the scenery often….
