Portrait: Trish  ManningI was an admirer of my uncle's black and white photography as a teenager but it was my relocation to the White Mountains about 20 years ago followed by the arrival of the first of seven grandchildren that helped me to uncover this hidden passion for photography.

The digital world of photography provides endless possibilities for creativity so the challenge is in being fully present and open to the opportunities in which "unique moments, expressions, and moods" unfold.
