Wishing you a Happy and Safe Celebratory July 4th, 2014
Here are a few of our Maine memories from
July's past...celebrating America!
This is where my love for photography began! Number 2 son, Nick, said "Mom.....you and Dad tell us about all these great places you are going, but we would love to see some pictures!" And, so.....it began....so much to see and so many beautiful places to photograph!
