Julia Margaret Cameron

"The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention."  Julia Margaret Cameron

The Echo

Sometimes on a Lazy Day I pull out one of my favorite little books and flip through the pages.

I Love Stories of Late Bloomers.
Julia Margaret Cameron discovered photography at the age of 48.
When you consider that the year was 1863, this is all that much more impressive.

 This was her first successful photograph. Imagine...no photography schools or manuals. Lots of scary chemicals and techniques.

The Whisper of the Muse

Summer Days

Many many years ago, when my kids were little, I was inspired to take this Julia Margaret Cameron style photo of my own children.
