I discovered a passion for photography a few years ago when my husband and I went on a safari and I discovered the magic of capturing images of the amazing animals through a telephoto lens. Since then, I have been fascinated with the concept of looking at the world in a different way through the lens of a camera. You often see things differently when you are hyper-focused on details you might not otherwise notice in everyday life. Through the lens, I see joy and feel a sense of zen. Thus, the title of my website "Zen Through The Lens." After almost three decades as an attorney in a high-powered, high stress litigation practice, I find great joy and relaxation in the practice of photography.
