Thank you. I'm glad you like them.
Here's the public link to my Facebook photo album. They're mostly nature and sunset photos (I decided to keep the pictures of my cats and niece/nephews out), so I hope you guys enjoy!
Your pictures are beautiful! Not many photographer is capable is catch a moment perfectly and tell a story with one picture, but each of your pictures has a soul and a story to tell. Arizona is a really beautiful place and it has an awesome atmosphere (At least if I see it right most of your pictures are presenting Arizona.). Your pictures are presenting that incredible place perfectly.

Quill wrote:Awesome pics, Brenda. Thanks for posting! And for the cool captions. I love photos with captions. I especially like the wildlife ones. The bobcat is amazing. And the reclining bunny. I visited a friend down in Tucson. She lived in a sort of community on the outskirts and there the pigs (javelina) hung out like they owned the place. Just laying around under the trees, wouldn't run if you approached them. Almost didn't feel safe. And the pack rats would ruin your car's wiring if you weren't on top of that, too. Wild country that Tucson.

Off course we get cats up here in the Prescott area, too. Several mountain lions photographed in yards this year and a bobcat killed. The occasional bear, as well. The javelina run amok here, too, although they don't hang out unless one feeds them. And there's the coyotes.

Anyway, loved your travel shots, too. Cool that you get to travel.
Thank you so much, Quill! My husband and I just cleaned a packrat nest out of my pool heater - the stupid thing broke the heater by building its nest right on top of the heating coil. It was a nightmare. I really enjoy living out here (10 miles south of I-10, just east of Tucson proper) because we do have all the wildlife. I don't get to travel much, but I've really enjoyed the trips I have been able to take. I'm more than happy to share my photos with anyone who will look at them. :)

You made me tear up a little bit, Guardian. That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said about my photos. I try to do justice to God's amazing handiwork and feel blessed that someone feels that I succeeded. And yes, most of the photos are in southern Arizona - in fact, most are from my backyard. (One of the last ones, with the green desert and mountains just visible to the left, is the view that I have from my backdoor.) I'm blessed to live in such a beautiful place. If they're taken somewhere else it should be noted in the captions.

I fell in love with Arizona years ago and subscribed to Arizona Highways magazine for awhile just so I could see photos like yours. Well done.

I actually looked at your photography and thought, "Wow. I wish I could take people's pictures like that!" I think people are a lot harder to photograph than nature - at least with trees and sunsets I don't have to worry about getting five pictures with everyone's eyes closed.

And I love that owl shirt! I want one. :)

BTW, I love your paintings, Sommer, especially the knitting one. It has such character!

Guardian, I agree with everyone else. Your art is incredible!!

These pictures are really lovely! I love nature pictures.

Cool - great photos, dios - very beautiful! I also love nature photography - the only thing I have on my walls.

Charlotte - Love your portraits. Love the eyes especially - and those are great shirts. did you make the shirts, too?

Lots of talent here! :)

Okay, this calls for a new stick figure.

Yes. Thank you. I thought this one was special. I was sort of thinking of changing it to a monster with really big bug eyes....or a mop. But I think the long hair lady really captures the essence of it.

Wow, guys, all of this is incredible. I have to admit, I have no such talents. All I do is draw shiny molecules super well! ;P No, really, when I discovered writing I was all "I CAN BE AN ARTIST!" Yayz. ;)

Also, Quill, I love that figure. Keep practising. ;P

Oh great. This is awesome. I'm being trumped in stick figures. Trumped doesn't cut it. Annihilated.

I was going to draw a field of grass: IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

but what's the point, now??

Thanks for the compliments! Portraits are a lot of fun, I think. I wish I could master the skill of landscape photography, I really do!

And the stick figures are awesome. I aspire to your talents. :-P

And yes, Mira, I made those shirts, as well. :-)
