Marion Judy McKenzie, Minden, La. 71055 Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement Hello Yall, my name is Judy and I am 66 years young and have been married 50 years this Sept. to my first and last boyfriend. I love taking photos of the Bayou and I have written a Creative non fiction Book titled POWER OF ATTORNEY WEAPON OF CHOICE about Elder Abuse Murder that occured in a small parish in north Louisiana. Any photos you choose can be upgraded to a higher resolution for presentation. My Bayou Serenity photo will be used as the backdrop for my Book cover. I am not a professional photographer, but I do see the beauty and Serenity of Gods work as I look through the lens of my camera, I actually say, WOW! could it be possible that the camera is going to capture the beauty and serenity of what I see? The answer is revealed in my simple photos of the Bayou, and although I would like to take credit for being a talented photographer, or for being able to capture such beauty because of the high powered lens or camera that I did not have, but the truth is I was at the right place at the right time and clearly God provided Dixie the egret and just the right lighting and setting so that I could share the Beauty of the Bayou with anyone that loves the Bayou or maybe they just love a scene or picture that makes them feel peaceful and that for that moment they reminisce of better and simpler times. My main treasured photo reflects the KCS RR Trestle in the back ground, Dixie the Egret, Moss laden Cypress Tree and the cypress knees that line the bank.
You can check out my Book on Kickstarter.com and to view my Photo closer and to see how it would be displayed using imagekind. Beautiful reprodutions are available in any size and style to meet your needs for display resembling the Beauty of a fine Oil Painting that will bring raves from your friends and family. I want to share the gift of Beauty I was fortunate to capture and I want to share their beauty and serenity with those they Inspire because simply because they BELIEVE!
I dedicate all my inspired work and accomplishments to my Precious son Randy and my precious sister Jeannie that taught us all to just simply BELIEVE! Thank you so much for your time and consideration, God Bless you each and everyone and remember just simply BELIEVE. Judy
