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.

P*S*B - Nov 2-8 ~ "A New Animal Portrait"

Tink Farabaugh

My friend Rhonda's cat, Tinkerbell -- she's very cute and loves to come up and rub against my legs, but she can turn evil in an instant! I've learned how to be friendly, yet wary at the same time. In this shot, she is glaring at me because I've been taking photos of her and she's getting annoyed!

Wow! My first reaction was Awwwwww! But then I say "the look". The one that says "I've REALLY had enough of this! Do I make myself clear?" LOL! Beautiful shot though. I love the lighting on the cats face but fading to the right! Nice work!

Fabulous capture, Kim!!! I could tell by the expression you caught, on this cat, that she was annoyed and it made me REALLY laugh! It's so like the life of a cat. Great, great work!
