Time is slipping by way too fast!!! Originally the intent was to post on a regular basis and share the beauty captured by my husband's eyes. I'm honored to share since my first post the Lions Eye Bank presented an award to my husband for the donation of his corneas. Now I like to believe the two people who received his corneas are seeing the beauty life offers every day!


My husband found beauty and pleasure in the simple things nature had to offer. He loved walking around our yard and capturing subjects such as a bee, mushrooms or flowerhead.

"Life Lives On..." is a lesson evolving from my husband's cancer journey.  One of the hardest challenges in life is saying goodbye to our loved ones.  Life as we once knew it no longer exists, and it takes time becoming used to the quietness which surrounds us afterward.

One day, as I was cleaning Bill's camera, called out to me.  I picked it up and started flipping through the many images never removed from the camera's storage area. It was then when I realized the beauty he left behind for us to enjoy throughout our lives.
I'm using this blog to share Bill's captures of those small moments in life some may take for granted. My husband's photographs remind me to take the time each day to enjoy the simplicities in life.
