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.

Life & Peace

My Goodness, it's been awhile! When Google redid the Blogger site I was unable to access my account for awhile and just got back in today. I've taken a ton of shots since my last post here, but today will only share two... 

I took these yesterday - Memorial Day - and processed them using digital textures by the fabulous Kim Klassen. I belong to both her "Texture Tuesdays" and "Beyond Layers" groups and these photos are for the BL group. Kim has declared this "Quote Week" - each day she will give us a word and our task is to find an appropriate quote and share it either on a photo or in some other creative fashion.

Monday's word: LIFE
