Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

'Praying' flowers

These rain lilies bloom for a very short time in the early morning hours.  Their opening is amazing and beautiful.

Bubbles and toes


10.30.11:  There are times I need simple and quiet, soothing and calm.  It's nice to retrieve into visions of childhood activities to create that space.  I remember taking this photo of my little one this past Spring which seems so long ago to me right now.  We enjoyed a little bubble blowing session outside on our back deck, and then a little toe dipping into our ornamental pond.

Reflections in brass

When I see a brass band, I can't help but see the reflections in brass.  I love this one because it captures the band, the crowd, and the elements of Jackson Square.  And if you can believe it, this is the same band, the Young Fellaz Brass Band, that I crossed paths with the week before on Bourbon.

A dose of happy

A nice reminder of the little things in life that bring me joy. A great New Orleans brass band, being out with my husband and friends, and playing photographer (while sitting on the front speakers, of course).
