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, not my dog, a friend, or even my husband ~ I'm talking about my camera! As much as I love to travel, so do I also love to document all the places I've been, and all the beautiful people I have met on my travels, so that I may share them with others ~ 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 1/2 year world travel adventure. We have lived aboard sailboats for the last 28 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 Panasonic DMC-TS5, and finally got my first DSLR, a Nikon D3300 with the 18-55 and 55-200 mm kit lenses, and I'm in heaven!
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!
