Barb Summering, Portland, Oregon Area Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I developed a great love for nature. Finding and capturing the amazing Natural Wonders that each day may present is at the core of who I am. Like a singer who always has a tune in their head, I always see what is before me as if I am capturing it for a photo. I love taking what I call, "Photographic Journeys". Any adventures in life which happen to include my Nikon, my tripod, friends, family or just flying solo. This combination creates a fun platform for creative photography and enjoying life! I find my favorite "captures" are rooted in nature and landscapes as I travel, but I also enjoy capturing humanity in action. Although not yet represented on my site, my three daughters can attest to the fact that they were some of the most photographed kids on planet Earth. Thank you for visiting. May you find a "capture" you can't live without!
