About me

I Started with a Rolliecord. Now I have a Canon Rebel T5i I love light, magic and Hymn #345 (All Things Bright And Beautiful) and try to capture it faithfully to share. I am an international traveler of the Clan Livingston/MacLea that has a thing for photographing food stuff around the world. (Then I eat/drink it.) ...and donkeys (photos only, no eating them). One of the most lovely colors in the world is great single malt scotch in a crystal glass, and that teal blue that sometimes happens in Ireland at twilight. Happy photographer/glassblower/... [Read more]
