Welcome to CLIQUE!

I can trace my love of photography back three generations, to the early 1900s and my paternal great-grandfather, Henry Mattson. I have a really cool photo that he took of the old family homestead in Minnesota, sometime before 1910. According to family history, Grampa Mattson frequently took photos of his world - the people and places that he loved.

It warms my heart to know that this love of photography didn't skip any generations as it passed down to me! I am blessed to have such a legacy and I hope to pass it on to my own children and grandchildren some day.

I experience a physical and spiritual thrill whenever the Lord shows Himself in His marvelous creation around us and in the people I meet. My dream vacation would be to spend a year or two just traveling around the US, stopping at little out of the way places and photographing the interesting characters and the beauty of nature to be found along the way - those things that draw me closer to GOD and help point others to Him, too.

Playing Catch-Up

Since I have just recently joined the Point *Shoot* Blog group and have only submitted to two challenges, I thought it would be fun if I went back through the previous challenges and post entries for those, as well.

Frame in a Frame


The first two photos were taken at Lake Hood in Anchorage Alaska and the last photo was taken at the Little Susitna River in Hatcher Pass - part of the Independence Mine Historical State Park in the Mat-Su Valley, about 40 miles from our home. Sorry I don't have any tehcnical details for my photos - I pretty much shoot everything in Auto mode and if I do use program or manual, I don't take note of the settings. Bad me.

Unique frame in frame shots--I like the one of the airplane and love the one with the bent tree branch. It reminds me of some of my fave Group of 7 paintings.
