The empty handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
This sky, too, is folding under you
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (1966-04-13 Sydney)

It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.

Introduction


 I grew up in the UK ( British father, Norwegian mother ) ,   but for the last 25 years I  have  lived in California  . I'm married with four almost grown up children . I have three neurotic cats and one dog. Together with my husband , we run a bicycle shop in Encinitas California . 

I can't remember ever not having a camera and taking pictures. It's something I've completely taken for granted as my great grandfather was R.F. Hunter, who formed R.F. Hunter Ltd. a photographic and Cine Screen Manufacturers . Their claim to fame was being the UK distributor for the Rollei Camera range, and I do remember my father taking pictures of us with one .  Here's a link to more history on Hunters  :  http://www.photomemorabilia.co.uk/Paterson/RFHunter_History.html

However . . . it's only been the last couple of years that it's gone from snap shots to complete obsession . . . and it has become hugely important as it's given me an identity . I've never had a formal career, went from college to marriage to bringing up a big family . . . this is something that is completely mine, and makes me incredibly happy . It's more creative outlet then any sort of cunning plan to make money . . . I just love taking pictures, playing with the light and focus, and the encouragement I have received from G+ has been astounding and just motivates me to push myself further . 

What inspired me to pick up a 'real' camera was  my husband. He got into photography a few years ago, and anything he gets into , be it computers, sports , motor bikes etc. he does a ton of research and then buys the best . So, I had all this cool equipment lying around and one day 'borrowed' a camera and lens . . . and never looked back . 

A few people have encouraged me to get my prints into a gallery, which seems both daunting and exciting . . . so that is a wish/ dream/ goal of mine . . . 

the softer side just appeals to me . . . not sure why. I am not drawn to epic landscapes or sharp lines in the same way as a soft sunset or grass silhouette . . . I did spend many years as a kid 'getting by' without my glasses as I preferred not seeing to being teased . . . I suspect I miss that soft blurry world I imposed on myself . 

I am inspired by everything around me, ordinary things in my home, my children, pets,  being out in nature on walks with my dog . I enjoy showing people how much beauty there is in the world without having to go to exotic places to find it .  My images are more about feelings and atmosphere thing pictures of 'things' .  I am often told that my images bring back memories, or stir up feelings , or are like some dream they had .  

 Artists who inspire me  . . .  Henri Carter-Bresson, such great humour and emotion in his work, and love his creative cropping . Monet, love the softness /dreaminess of his paintings.  Carl Larsson, for his wondering paintings of his home and family, 'domestic bliss' at it's best, and reminds me so much of my summers spent with my Swedish grandmother .  Mark Rothko . . . just something about those vibrant blocks of colour , love at first sight .
