Hi Beverly:
From the other Beverly!
Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog and website. Here's our other connections.......I am a photographer also and have taught infrared as well as black and white and color. I'm holding out and will not turn to digital yet. I need the depth of field and feel of developing my own film and printing my own work.
Also, I was a special education teacher before I started representing special artists. Small small world! Your lovely photos of Petsone, which look remarkably like Oak Bluffs in Martha's Vineyard, is where my kids and grandkids spend part of our Summers. You do lovely work!
