Over the weekend my boyfriend and I hit up a tag sale at an arts collective downtown. I love a good tag sale find and the potential of finding something fun and creative was too huge a pull to walk away from. And my instincts were right! We walked through the small-ish tag sale pretty quickly, but then found the photography section and picked up these three beauties! Old cameras. I couldn’t be happier. And they work, too, so they have the potential to be so much more than just decorative. They were also selling a bunch of darkroom equipment. …
I’ve been looking forward to sharing this project for a few weeks while it was at the printer: Hot of the press is the 2017 Kitty Harbor Calendar! This design had been done by a volunteer who moved too far away to continue so I took over the reigns this year and did the photography and pre-press work for the shelter.

I’ve been enjoying taking photographs more and more for my clients lately. Especially food photos! These three shots are from The Back Porch Restaurant in Old Saybrook. (Yummy, right?)

Every time I visit the Mystic Aquarium I’m drawn in, as if by magnetic force, to the jellyfish exhibit. I love how peaceful and graceful they are and could watch them for hours. And they are very, very photogenic. Here are three new shots from last weekend:
I love flipping the new page of the Shelter Me Calendar! Here’s Gilbert from Ray of Light Farm in East Haddam.
This little cutie from Forgotten Felines and he’s going to be in the Shelter Me 2014 Calendar!
I was lucky enough to be doing some traveling the beginning of this month — seeing Asheville, Savannah, Charleston and the Outer Banks to mention a few of the stops along the way. But, only I would want to plan a stop on vacation at a cat rescue. Now, hear me out — this was no ordinary rescue. To start, it was a sanctuary. In other words, every cat there never has to worry about finding a new home ever again. But, more than that, it was a sanctuary for blind cats, and other less adoptable ones (with FIV and …
