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 where I live! Since my retirement from a lengthy career in education, I have been able to devote more time to photography.



Long Island has so many beautiful beaches and parks with abundant wildlife. It’s just a wonderful place for taking photos! I enjoy sharing my images on the web.
Visit my blog, Long Island Woman  to see and read just why I love my Long Island. All of my photos here include images of Long Island, New York City, my hobbies, and my international travel adventures.
