Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography




“Dreams of the big city

Captivates my imagination.

A bridge across the river

Directs my path.

Adventure beckons me

At the end of the road.”

Francine Gassette

This photo was taken on my trip to New York City in June, 2012.  To me it symbolizes the long-awaited answer to a dream now fulfilled.
