Maxine Elizabeth, San Francisco Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement I've always loved taking pretty pictures, they energize me. Photography was my dad's hobby. It became mine as I pursued a stressful financial career of stocks, bonds and taxes, which has lasted over 40 years and lead me from Wall Street via Texas on to California.
In November of 2006, I cross off an item on my "Bucket List" and took a guided tour down California's Highway 1. That trip changed my life, and reignited my passion for photography. I realized that the beauty of nature touched my soul, raised my spirits and made me happy.
My gallery contains picture from various locations, where I've lived or traveled to. The majority of my pictures are from the Central Coast of California, one of the most beautiful places in the world. May the images of my pictures, "Keep the Coast Close" to you.
Enjoy the view, and feel free to purchase a few. Here's hoping my photography touches your soul, raises your spirits and makes you happy too.
