Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


Lighthouse four

One of the reasons I started this blog was because of my love of photography.  I love to take pictures of everything I see in life.  After encouragement from a couple of friends, Ruth Hendricks and Jill Wiggins, I started this blog.  I wanted people to see what I see through the lens of my camera.

Never in a million years would I have believed that this blog would have grown in the way it has in such a short period of time.

Over the past six or so months I have received a number of awards, of which I am very honored to receive, but I became so embarrassed that I could not find time to do a response to them and pass them on to many well deserving fellow bloggers.  I wanted to focus more on viewing, liking and commenting on all your beautiful and enlightening post.

It was the reason I started posting the “Salute to Bloggers”, every Thursday, to acknowledge my appreciation for your wonderful work.

Each of you light up my life and increase my knowledge of the world and what is in it.  You take me to places I’ve never been and teach me things I’ve never known.  You make me laugh, you bring tears to my eyes.  At the end of the day I am blessed for having known you.
