Hello, Sierra Nevada Mountains! So nice to be home. Much as I love the coastal zones, you make me feel like myself again.

The River Bus... Paris, France
I miss Paris! I've been saying that since 2010... you'd think nearly a month in France would cure me. Mais non! But at least now I have a ton of photos to go through and experience it all over again. 

This is the Seine River near La Concierge... with an Autobus making its way. You can buy a ticket, then hop on-hop off all day long! It's a fun way to see travel between sights. 

Speaking of "Autobus"... I always say it the way Leelu in "The 5th Element" said "Bada-bing, Bada-BOOM". Did you ever see that movie. One of my faves. :D

Bonsai In the Light... Lake Tahoe, Nevada 
Hey, I take the "typical" shots of certain iconic spots like Bonsai Rock... because people identify with them. So do I! But then I'll always snoop around for a different story.

Kind of like when you drive through a cool neighborhood at night and someone has their living room curtains open - and snoop-t-doo, you can see inside. Admit it... you check it out and imagine what it's like to live there.

Or am I the only one who does that? Bueller? Bueller?
(I know I'm not!)

So this was that, only of a famous rock and its resident bonsai tree one afternoon at Lake Tahoe.

Roofs... Courtils, France
Oh, hello village of Courtils in the gorgeous French countryside of Normandy. I miss you... and your utterly charming homes with their awesome roofs. 

You know it's the little things, right? Le sigh.

Thank you +Karen Hutton, for pointing out the roofs. My Irish heritage always draws me to the stones, laid one upon the other, with all their odd shapes that move my eyes up, over, and around them, appreciating the hands that lifted and carried them to the wall and mortared them in place, fitting them side by side just as we all learn to live side by side with one another. #stone #rock #Connemararock #Irishwalls

The wondrous Valerie Millett is guest editing right now over at +500px ... and chose this image of mine as one of her Editor's Picks! I'm humbled, because she is AMAZING.

I made this crazy image at Yosemite some years back, just wanting to try something totally different; I got a notion to see if I could make a photo look like a feeling. (Hey, I've done stranger things!)

Personally, I've always loved it, but it's definitely not mainstream.
So a huge thank you to the Divine Ms. M and 500px!
As she stood before their towering wisdom, she felt a shift. No matter how it would later be described, she knew nothing would ever be the same.

CONGRATULATIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE +Trey Ratcliff and Peak Design Team!! WooHOOOO!!! What a huge undertaking... what a huge step accomplished!
Wow - people really like this bag!! (I was secretly hoping!!)

Thanks everyone! In the HOUR 3 we doubled our goal over at !  Congrats to the amazing team at Peak Design and THANK YOU.  

Peter just popped up VIDEO #2 there on the page. It really gets into the dirty details of everything about the bag and should answer 99% of your questions.  I had a GREAT time working on the bag with the team and learned a ton. I went into this thinking that I was a Bag Expert. I wasn't... just had a lot of floaty opinions... but now, 11 months later, well, maybe I am! :)  To see the new Video #2, float on over to

I'm not ignoring you, I just needed a little social break. Y'know how it is, the noise, the loud music... sometimes you just go sit in the back for a bit so your ears stop ringing. Give yourself a little foot massage.

But I'm back on the dance floor (you didn't even noticed I was gone, did you?)... I've been photographing awesomeness... and a have a really cool blog post coming out tomorrow!

Photography, Voiceovers, Purveyer of Awesomeness

Overall, my world is a big ball of photographic, voiceover and content creational fun. 
Think of it as; Lenses and Light - meet Microphones, Words and Sound. 
Don't look so surprised! They play really well together. 
They each share a particular point of view. Tell stories. Express a unique 'signature'. A Voice. What's not to love?

Photography is why I breathe, baby. That's lifelong, undying love and passion. It's all about: Connection. Inspiration. Story. Humor. And Beauty. Who couldn't do with more beauty in the world? I love photographers because they wear their heart on their sleeve and it lives in their work. Their breathtaking world view. Their intensely personal story... the one that we just HAVE to tell or our hearts will simply burst from the withholding of it. 

I produce and host a show called: THE CHAT with Karen Hutton: Sound byte-sized insights from some of the coolest people on the planet!

In it, I chat with creatives; successful artists, photographers, musicians, singers, creative business folks... all of whom are uniquely engaged in "living life as an artist: or better yet, living their life as if it were their art." 

Voiceover is global. Over the years, hundreds of commercials, narrations and announcements for planes, trains, automobiles, television and radio… and for fabulous apps like MotionX-GPS Drive. (Cougar anyone?)  Or apps on your iPad helping you to dream, adventure and plan your next travels, like Stuck on Earth, created by Trey Ratcliff. I'm the voice of the guide over there.

The way I see it, our individual signature - our point of view or 'voice' - connects us. Is our heart speaking, through everything we do. After all, as my mother used to say "You can't hide who you really are." Wise woman.

My first eBook is called I/WE: Scenes From the Big Picture. It's geared toward that childlike desire we all have to soak in pretty pictures and a good (very short) story.

So, welcome to my world.

Over here we love to capture, shoot, chase, wait for, plan for and generally live in (and for) - light.

And with a little light, don't you know... anything is possible. 


"The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead of stuff and it rewards gracefulness.

...the future belongs to the breathtaking."
