Interview: Landscape Photography Magazine 2019

I ran into an ole friend the other day. We worked together in the medical field in Pediatrics some 17 years ago!  Since leaving, I'd seen her children grow up on social media and it was so cool to see them all in person, all grown.  As we were catching up, she says ..."and what about you and your photography!!"   When we worked together, I wasn't a photographer, I was a painter.  In fact, I painted the murals for the entire Pediatrics Center and got a big kick out of the whimsical nature of the art and how the kids reacted.  It was good times.

I said "Ya, what a trip heh?  Something that started as just trying to photographically clean up my hiking blog.  As I told her, I kept wondering why my images didn't look like Arizona Highways Magazine's images. It frustrated me so I put my energy into it and it became an obsession.  Ironically, ending up being published by Arizona Highways Magazine and their calendars as a contributor.  We had a good laugh! Isn't that crazy.

Fast forward to today, as now my blog has been taken over by my photography ( I do still hike though) and here I am, blogging about where this "quest" has taken me and ultimately, I'm posting about being interviewed by a magazine that I would have never...ever...ever...thought my images would be there. Not in a million years.
