About Me

My camera has always been required gear for my journey through life, from my first film SLR to my current Nikon. I love being outdoors in my natural surroundings. My interests of boating, beaching, fishing, scuba-diving, birding and traveling, fit perfectly with my love of photography.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn and moved to Long Island, NY as a young adult. I love Long Island! Since my retirement from a lengthy career in education, I have been able to devote more time to photography.


My husband and I recently moved to Florida to escape the cold winters. My heart is still, and always will be, in Long Island, and in New York!

Long Island has so many beautiful beaches and parks with abundant wildlife. It’s just a wonderful place for taking photos! Florida has given me a new environment to explore! I enjoy sharing my images on the web.
