Lovely galleries! You have quite an expanse in subject matter and the images are wonderful. I really enjoyed your blossoms, particularly the camellia and roses.
Michele -- So great to meet you at the luncheon today. I found your site and have enjoyed looking through your wonderful pictures! They're just amazing. Thanks for sharing the information about the Sierra Camera Club and Viewpoint. I'm going to check out those websites next. I'm not even close to this skill level, and it's inspiring to see your pictures. Take care!
Enjoyed my first visit to your gallery! As others have already commented, you have a eye for what makes a great photo. I booked-marked your site and will be checking back to see new postings!!
Michele, I so enjoyed seeing your photographs, but especially enjoyed your articles and thoughts on the taking of the images. I love the tale of heart, eye and camera capturing a particular moment in time. It was lovely to meet you the other night at Reggie's. I hope to see more of you. Bravo Sistah'!

'If one has the ability to see beauties all the time, one never grows old.' Michele, your wonderful photos rejuvenate me. Love visiting your website and learn from you. Glad you like my photos 'captured' at Miss Universe Pageant 2012 in Las Vegas. U know, I experienced many one-chance-one-shot-Kodak moments, especially at the After Party held in Planet Hollywood Celebrity Ballroom.

It's all about the eye. Photographers can study exposures, lighting and equipment ad nauseam but if they don't have an "eye" for the detail or expression that captures the moment, they end up with snapshots. Michele truly has the eye for captivating photographs, as her gallery shows.
Michele's work is amazing. She has a keen eye for the subject, the composition, the technical quality and the story each photo tells. Why does this surprise me? I've known Michele for more than 20 years. She approaches photography the way she approaches everything: as a professional who loves what she does, has a love and talent for it, is constantly expanding her technical knowledge and ability, and is ever striving to be better.
Michelle: What a wonderful array of photos. I just love your versatility of subjects. You have a talent that is rare in capturing the beauty surrounding us every moment. Thanks for sharing. Ed
