I grew up in Seattle Washington and absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. I now live outside Seattle on a small farm with my husband, my children and numerous animals who are often subjects of my photos. I have been known to pull the car over at any given time to get a good shot. I have just begun to scratch the surface of the world of digital photography and look forward to learning more as I go. Thanks to BP for creating such a wonderful outlet for the beginner.
