i have had the great fortune in my life to be able to travel a lot, thanks to having a father who worked for United Airlines for many years. i have been to almost every state, including Alaska and Hawaii, and even out of the country - New Zealand and England. i mention this to say that after all that exploring, i still love West Virginia, where i lived as a child until i was 7. My dad still lives there, in the house where we lived and that he and my mother and grandfather built.
i did most of my traveling with my dad when i was a teenager. Along with a love of travel, he also passed to me a love of photography. He himself is an amazing nature photographer. i love all forms of art, and photography is very close to my heart. i wanted to share a few pictures i took in West Virginia. These are about 4 years old, but some of my favorites.
