I’m so happy to have gotten to know this amazing lady and fellow photographer. First I became her mentor, then I photographed her precious family. Soon after that, they found out that her husband had cancer and they immediately were faced with difficult and costly treatments. When her husband began to lose his hair, she wanted to show him her love and support and so she cut off all her gorgeous, thick, shiny hair and donated it to make wigs for cancer patients. She asked me to record that moment with photography. These images serve as a vivid reminder to me that life if incredibly delicate and precious.
I’m overjoyed to say that her husband is currently cancer free!

Shadows, sidewalk cracks, rust, weeds, chain link fence, blacktop. These images of my old elementary school are so rich with great memories. I try to go back to my old neighborhood whenever I’m traveling anywhere nearby. The house that we lived in has been changed to the point where it’s almost unrecognizable. But thankfully the school, at least on the outside, is much the same as it was all those years ago. Please visit Sarah for more of our shadow theme.
Before I had a chance to plan this month’s Project Ten photo shoot, I was cleaning out the deep dark places in the back of one of our closets and found buried treasure! These Serendipity books were some of my absolute favorites as a child. The illustrations just spoke to me, even at that young age. The wide-eyed willowy animals, the dreamy locations… it was all SO beautiful. My daughter is an animal lover just like me and has become just as enamored with these books as I was at her age. Ahh, this fills me with warm fuzzy nostalgic feelings. Please visit Sarah Waggoner’s blog to find more nostalgia images.
I am a California girl through and through, who was transplanted to Arizona about nine years ago. Although I do love it here and have come to think of it as home, it’s still so strange to me to think that my children are Arizona natives. For some reason that seems so crazy to me. So here is my girl, in my native habitat, in which she is out-of-place. For her, taking a trip to San Diego is a novelty, something new and exciting. For me, it’s a trip back in time.
Interesting fact: Early settlers in the San Diego area planted huge amounts of eucalyptus, intending to use the fast growing trees to make railroad ties. Unfortunately, the wood was too soft for that purpose. But you can still find them growing everywhere.
Also interesting: My daughter almost never gets hurt, but she did manage to skin her knees on the way to this location. There were a few tears but, true to form, she was laughing and exploring in no time.
