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.

Texture Tuesday ~ the "And Then Some" eDition

It's been awhile since I've participated in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday *or* posted here in the blog. Life sometimes gets in the way of doing the things we long to do...  The challenge this week was to use at least one layer of Kim's "And Then Some" texture on our photo. I chose the image of a daisy field because winter has finally hit our area and after two days of snow and cold, I felt the need to work on a cheery photo!
