I enjoyed photography since a small child too, and also took a dark room class in college. I regret not working in my field of art though or photography. Oil painting has been something I did over the years while building our home, designing and creating the gardens. I enjoyed artistic things on my own by doing what I just mentioned, and other forms of art, but worked in the medical field 10 years, then just stayed at home and made it nice. I think it is great that you got to work in a museum, I thought about starting a private museum, using my work. Designing my gardens in the Smoky Mountains of TN accidentially created a habitat for geen Anolis Carolinensis Lizards. My account is expired here but see Gourley Garden or Private Paradise

I found your picture of the Wyoming Highway (Black and white with the broken road) and was wondering if I could buy that picture. Please e-mail me your cost at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Very impressive work! One of the best group of galleries on Pbase. Thanks for sharing!

Your images are very beautiful. keep up the good work!
You got some mad skills.
Thank you for the kind words. It is not my usual type of picture (kids, dogs :-) He wanted a picture that emphasized his body. It was a fun shoot, his Mom was holding the reflector. :-)
Hi Mindy. Thanks for the comment.
I hope you don't mind my asking, but how do you get the second image (the small one) on the same page?
Thank you for the kind comment in my "ramblings of a coastalgirl" gallery. I loved perusing your galleries. You have many superb shots with lovely colour, sharpness, textures, and expression. A great place to visit. I too, switched to digital kicking and screaming....I have the same problem with the use of a cell phone.
I love your work. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Mindy , thanks for all the comments and for sharing your work , made for a nice lil' birthday present for me . It's so nice to find someone with the gift to appreciate & capture natural light at it's best . Kevin

Thanks Mindy for your vote and nice comment on my image...
Not only did I enjoy your works but learned a lot about excellent compositioning as well.
I can see much thought has gone into these shots, the more one looks the more one finds.
Your B&W's made me really 'think' and 'see' !!!
Wish you the best.
Fantastic galleries, really excellent work. Congratulations.
Astounding works throughout all your galleries. This is photography on a different level, unique, artistic, the works of a true pro!
Wonderful photography. All your images are very impressive. Wow.
Thank you very much.
Hi Mindy, your Greece photos are beautiful! Makes me want to jump on an airplane and go there myself. You are so talented and captured such beauty. Marcie
Thank you Mindy! I have really enjoyed your pictures from Greece. Well done!
Thank you for your comment on my green garden door photo. I'm enjoying viewing your recent travel images--a fine body of work. I'm planning a European trip next year--if I can decide which of many places to visit! Regards, Steve
Thank you for visiting my galleries and for your comments!

Best Regards & Congratulations!

Sehr nützlich, informativ und anschaulich!
Thank you Mindy. I am still in the learning stage but know enough to find fault in nearly every picture. I tried every which way to get rid of that spot on her shoulder. In the end I did what I intended, which was to concentrate on her eyes. So if that is what you saw..mission accomplished. :-)
Thank you again,
I think your pictures are worth more than a thousand words. Keep it up!
Thank you Mindy! We had a lot of fun. I will go back there again.
Mom & Dad
I am almost doubled over with laughter - having just looked at the June 5-6 comments on your most recent picture of the blue cornflower, or whatever it is, only three persons remarked on the ant that is crawling or sitting there!! You should put a comment about this on your next one!!
So, so many great galleries with so, so many great shots. I will return often follow your work. Great stuff!
Enjoyed ur work. Susi
I like your site

Thanks for your comments on my photo (
), I have been looking through your gallery and love your work!
Thank you for the comment on my photo of the day. It is very much appreciated!
One of the best galleries I have seen. Simply beautiful!
Hello Mindy, thanks for visiting my gallery. I love your work.
Hello there! Just want to say that I find your site enough interesting for me. Usefull information and all is good arranged. Thank you for your work. I will visit your site more ofter from now and I bookmarked it.
Alleen onder Glamour versta ik wat anders maar dat moet kunnen.
Great website! Bookmarked! I am impressed at your work!
It's my first visit to your website. After just a quick browse, I'm really impressed!
Thanks for the comment. You do excellent work. Love your Macro's (and all others).
I'm always pleased when a talented photographer appreciates my work.
Thank you very much :)
Thank you Mindy! :-)
Thank you so much for the recent visit to my PAD gallery and for the wonderful comments. Your galleries are amazing :-)
Thank you again for the nice comment on the wilted tulip, it means alot coming from the "queen of macro". :-)
Thank you for your encouraging words about my gallery, it is really appreciated.
Mindy you are so kind, as you visit my galleries often and leave comments. I on the other hand...well, I should get out more and leave comments too. You are in "my favorites" and I think your work is awesome, which makes your comments all the more valuable. Thank you so very much, I really do appreciate you.
Thanks for visiting my galleries and for your kind words. Both are greatly appreciated all the more so when I see the fine work that you exhibit. My visit to yours has been enjoyable and instructive. I hope the capture, processing and presentation was as much fun for you and that you keep on sharing.
You have excellent galleries there. This is very inspiring. I will add you to my favorite list right away!
Thank you for your comment. It let me find your galleries. They're amazing. I added your name to my favorites list.
Thank you, Mindy, for your comments on my PaD gallery. I have spent time viewing your galleries and am truly inspired by your wonderful images. I particularly love your coastal scenes gallery. Exceptional work!

Hi Mindy, thanks so much for the kind comment on my owl picture. I just love your galleries - from landscapes to flowers to people, you capture them all beautifully.
Initially I wanted to write to say thank you for the nice comments, but after seeing some of your work I think I should also thank you for all the beautiful pictures that you have on here. I am quite flattered that you found some pictures that you liked. Thank you!
Glad that I found your beautiful galleries - what an amazing collection! Thanks for sharing your fine works and the inspiring learning experience I've looking at them... Will be back again :)
Happy New year Mindy, hope the foot heals quickly and you can ditch the crutches! (Lovely indoor shots despite all that.)
First, let me thank you for your nice comment regarding my sunset photo. Secondly, let me thank you again for sharing your wonderful photos with all of us. I love your macro shots the most though :-)
Thank you Mindy, Lake Tahoe is my favorite place to go. It doesn't hurt that I live 20 minutes from there. I have gone there more in the last year since I got my digital camera that I had in the last 20! The hard part is finding the time. I want to shoot all the moods of the lake...that will be quite a project! :-)
Mindy, Thank you for the kinds words about my Emerald Bay picture. Your galleries are amazing. Wonderful work!! I will put you in my "favorite artist" group.
I really like your PAD, and as difficult as it is to come up with a good image everyday, you manage to always make it happen. Every time you come up with an extremely well executed picture. Your work shows your attention to details and good quality photography, which is seldom seen on PBase. I will keep following your PAD.
What a great way to get ready for bed - perusing your lovely photographs - hope they are what I dream of - hopefully, others will be as enchanted with them as we are!! We will have to build on another room if we are to frame and display all that we think are perfection!! So proud of you!! Love, Mom and Dad
@ Bruce Gilling
hey Mindy thanks for your commnents again
Thank you for having dropped by gallery (as a result of my having previously dropped by yours. :) Looking through your galleries it's obvious you are a very talented and accomplished artists, and so your kind words especially mean much. Regarding the Pottery gallery the potter, Bill Gossman, asked me to document the firing process to illustrate a magazine article he was writing, and it was an assignment I was very nervous about. A friend of mine told me not to worry--"If he wanted good pictures he would have hired a pro." LOL I think many of them came out pretty well, and your kind words are much appreciated. Obviously I have a ways to go, and so find your work something to shoot for myself.
Again, many thanks,
Wat een prachtige vernieuwde website. Heldere opzet en ook een goede kleurstelling. Mooi.
Met vriendelijke groeten
Just took a look into your other gallery. Beautiful work, a real Pro! Don't know whether you are into color management,i.e, your camera, monitor, printer profiling? Well, I'm the Manufacturing Engineer for Gretagmacbeth. My company is into "Digital Imaging", check out our web-site at www.gretagmacbeth.com. No, I'm not a salesman, I'm in charge of all aspect of manufacturing engineering, both electrical and electronic. I have friends in the "DI" department and would help, if I can, anyone on pbase with color management questions. If I don't know, I will find out. For me at the moment, photography is a hobby. I would like to take it to the next level like weekend side-jobs since all our manufacturing is moving to China. Perhaps by next year I'll be taking pictures at Wal-Mart! Thanks for visiting my site. Take care and don't work too hard.
Thank you so much for your recent comments it means so much to have positive feedback, especially as I am learning new skills! I have always enjoyed photography but only on a point & shoot basis, DSLR is a new ball game for me; it's giving me so much enjoyment in my 'old age'!
Your galleries are wonderful, you have so much talent, I'm glad I had the opportunity of viewing them, you are now firmly in 'my favourites'
Best wishes from the UK
Hey Mindy...thanks for visiting my site too! I love your work, it is freedom for the eyes! Keep it up!
Thank you very much for checking out my gallery and for the kind comments:)
Your galleries are amoung the best I have seen...it is no wonder that you have almost 200,000 viewers in 6 months! I cannot choose a favorite because they are all special. I have made you one of my favorites......thanks for sharing.
Mindy, thanks for the nice comments on my Valley of Light photo. Cheers! Stan
YOU HAVE THE BEST PICTURES I HAVE EVER SEEN.
WHAT AN OUTSTANDING GALLERY.
THANKS SO MUCH
Thanks for the great comments on my images, I loved your work as well, great variety.
Mom and Dad
Seeing your wonderful photographs reminds me I have to send your PAD information to all our internet friends!! It is so exciting to think they might want some for prints or cards - of course, then you'll have to stay up all nite putting them together - agh!!
Love you so much. Mom and Dad
you have some amazing galleries. kudos
Really fantastic work Mindy. Your galleries are very inspiring, especially to an amateur like myself. Thanks for your kind words regarding my gallery -- it's very gratifying to receive comments from someone of your photographic caliber!
Hi Mindy - just wanted to say thanks for you kind comments on my PaD gallery over the last couple of weeks. Its very flattering to get comments from one of Pbase's "leading lights"! Thanks again, Steve
I live in Sterling Hts. which borders Troy. Small world. Thanks for all your nice comments, I'm impressed with your work as well. Thanks, Mike Moats.
Mindy, your galleries are amazing! Thank you so much for commenting on my photos.
Great gallery Mindy. Thanks for all the kind words. Next time your in Wyoming you have to take a look at the Dino sites they have here. Here is a galley on a personal friend of mine that has a dig site just east of us.
I thought mabey this might intrest you. Hope all goes well with your mom. Thank you Richard :)
Mom and Dad
Mindy - we are so proud of your fabulous photography - and especially enjoy reading the comments from other photographers - a big "thank you" for those who have followed my progress and care enough to send messages!! Love you loads. Mom and Dad
Mindy, thanks for the nice comments on my Moraine Valley Morning image, you do some really nice work yourself :) Cheers! Stan
Thanks for the nice comments you've left in my galleries earlier! I've been slowly wandering throughout yours and there is so much to take in! Absolutly beautiful work!
I was reading your bio on the profile page; it seems we share similar photographic experiences, starting in the old darkroom days. I miss the darkroom, but not the film...go figure. Anyhow, thanks for the nice comments.
Thanks so much for your kind comments left in my galleries earlier. As you know, I have very much enjoyed viewing your fine work here at pbase, and at your own website.
Thanks Mindy, for stopping by my PAD. Thanks also for the comment on my slice of the apple shot. I've been told before that I sometimes have a lopsided view. :)
Good morning Mindy;
Thanks for your comment on the hibiscus. I have been using my 50mm 1.4 lens a lot lately. It is easier to hand hold and still get a sharp image. I prefer to not use a tripod if I can avoid it. My wife Edie and I are off to Wellsboro, Pa. to play some golf for a few days. I may try to get some shots of the grand canyon of the east while we are there. Have a great day.
I had to take a close look at my bee again. I am somewhat colorblind and had not seen the color in the bee's wings.
I had never minded being colorblind until I bought my first medium format camera and found that I couldn't process my own prints at a local lab in Buffalo. I like to think that maybe my handicap increases my ability to compose a shot.
I do like my 20d and spend a lot of time shooting local scenes. Thanks again for your help. Ed
Your western landscapes made me want to take a trip. Very nice work.
Mindy, what can i say.. this is a wonderful collection of wonderful images. You have inspired me amensly here. Thank you..
thank you Mindy for comment my images
your galleries are outstanding...and you are a gorgeous woman!
Really beautiful work you have done throughout all your galleries. You have a great eye and a lot of talent! Thanks for sharing your fine work with us.
Please allow me to thank you for your generously supportive and encouraging comments on several images that I have posted since first subscribing to PBase a month ago. Thanks as well for posting so many wonderful and inspiring images in your galleries that model the very best in first class photography - both in technique and artistic expression. Photographic plodders like me can learn so much from studying your compositions. Cheers!
Mindy, Thanks for visiting my galleries.
really like your all galleries, and liike your unique style!
Mindy, Thanks for your continued help with the sunset shots - we haven't had many opportunities here for those shots this week - Dennis has poured down on us this week. Hope you've had a good week.
Thank you Mindy for your comment of my photo "Sky on fire". It gave me an opportunity to see your wonderful galleries. They are totally in my taste.:-)
Thanks for the comment on the Ferris wheel photo. It was one of those mornings -- perfect sky, perfect light, perfect colors ... all I did was point and shoot. I was humbled after visiting your gallery and seeing the incredible quality of your work. Amazing!
Your artist eye shows up in all your work. I agree that you need to be in the right place at the right time (luck?) but you must have talent and ability to succeed the way you have. Thanks for sharing your work.
Thanks so much for your help - I appreciate it greatly - I will check out the link you sent too - thanks again!
Thanks so much for your comment - especially considering your lovely work. I have only had my camera for a week. Do you have any advice for taking pictures of sunsets? I took some tonight and found that sometimes the sun and the sky around it could look distorted. Do you use flash with a sunset? Again, thanks so much.
Thank you for comment on my pictures. There are so many great pictures in your galleries, which gives me difficulties to select some specific ones to comment.
Very Nice Galleries. Also an elegant female photographer.
Mindy, took a trip through your PAd alternates...they are wonderful! Also visited your website which is so interesting. I want to do something like this eventually with some
of my photos. Your photography is artist and inspiring. Thanks
Thank you, Mindy, for your vote (of confidence, as I like to say)!
Your galleries are marvellous. I notice the rare gift you have - that is, to find and then capture the small pockets of beauty in everyday things, simple things that others would pass by unnoticed.
Hi Mindy. Took even more time this morning to look through your galleries. Very nice! I'm inspired Mindy. Truly. Your PAD shots are all works of art. Where many PAD shots seem "snapped off" on other people's galleries, you have captured the subject matter with a wonderful eye. Thanks for your kind comments. It's nice to be encouraged by someone with your abilities. Take care.
Mindy, I just took a trip through your galleries, and am really impressed. Wish I could pick a best, that's difficult with yours..They are tops. Thanks for sharing, I'll be back...Ron...I also appreciate your comment.
Hi Mindy - thanks for stopping by to look at my galleries and for your comments. I'm envious of you being able to make a living doing this! Best wishes, Steve
Hello Mindy. I enjoyed your gallery immensely. Will come back often.
Take care, Brian.
nice homepage you've got!
keep up the good work
Mindy. Thanks very much for the your kind comments on one of my rather "rough" black and white images. I've been to your galleries before and have loved your wonderful work. I'm off to look at a few more. Take care. Daniel.
Mom, it's great to see you back on the computer!!! You'll see as you read the comments throughout my PAD gallery that you have had tremendous support and many prayers from fellow Pbasers that I have been getting to know! This is an amazing group of people! Glad you're back!! Enjoy!! Love you, Mindy
Am so thrilled to be home and able to view your new photos and comments on PBase -- it will take alittle time to go through all of them - but I'll give it the good-ole' college try!! Love you loads, Mom
Hello Mindy. Thank you for your nice comment on my picture. I was travelling to France, more precisely the Normandie. The village is very small and called "Vauville". It is about 50 km / 32 miles from "Omaha Beach" where the allies and in particular the americans landed on 6 June 1944. Thanks god they came as I would otherwise be under the Nazi regime....:) If you intend to come to Europe one day you should go to France / Normandie. It is a very nice region. Should you come to Luxembourg let me know and it will be my pleasure to show you the country. Thierry
Thank you for your gracious comments. I enjoy shooting flowers very much. Also, thank you for sharing your wonderful images. Keep up the good work!
You take the most beautiful photos, really exceptional. One is more beautiful than the next. Keep 'em coming.
I just love your nature shots. You have some very beautiful images here. I really admire your work. I've added you to my list of favorites.
Thanks for the comment in my PAD.
I looked your galleries and I was blown away,it is really one of the most incredible sites I have seen on Pbase. I saved you as a favorite and look forward checking your site often.
Thanks for your kind words. It means alot coming from a seasoned photographer. You have an amazing gallery. I'll be visiting regularly.
Thanks for your response to my pad for today. I really like the "finished" look framing gives my pictures. Of course, there are times when no frame works best, too! I preferred the top picture as well but there was just something about the second picture that drew me in as well. OY! LOL Thanks, again, Cindi
You are so good! I am very impressed and really enjoyed viewing your collection. I am definitely adding you to my favorites.
Some simply stunning photo's - Well Done...I need to return to veiw every one. Thanks for sharing.
I can see that photography is a passion of yours...your photos breathe with life and color. Thanks for sharing them.
Hey, thanks for the comment on my wasp on wintercress photo today; I like your work, especially the landscapes, as well.
jypsee in Michigan for the summer
Hi Mindy, your photos are exceptional! I wonder if you could post the listing of your camera equipment? Thanks, and looking forward to more of your images this summer!
Mindy. Thank you for visiting my galleries and commenting on some of my pictures. I particularly appreciate the opportunity your visit gave me to come and view your beautiful galleries! :)
Mindy. Thank you for your comments on my recent photographs. I've only now found time to have a good look at your galleries - they are outstanding - will keep coming back. Best wishes to your Mom in her rehabilitation. From the photos of her she certainly looks as though she has the right attitude to recover well. Take care.
Hi Mindy. Thanks for commenting on my PAD today. I looked at some of your photos and have put you on my favorites list. The photos of your mom are very touching. I hope her recovery is going well. And I LOVE your flower shots. Flowers are among my very favorite subjects.
Mindy, Thanks for shareing the photos. All your galleries are excellent. Ron
Thanks for the encouragement. I enjoyed your galleries. I,m feeling the need to go south. the snow just melted up here. St. Thomas sounds nice.
Ron Lutz II
Hey Mindy! Wow, just a little over a month on here and already all these guestbook comments! Whoo-hoo! Cool beans! Things are looking really great around here.
Very enjoyable galleries and I like your Scotland photos (my home). I wish your mother a good recovery. My father took a fall amd broke his hip on holiday in Thailand. Some of your PAD shots took me back to that episode! Take care.
"Another fabulous road shot! Makes me want to get in my car and go! Love it!"
Thanks for your praise on the picture of the "Sandhills of Nebraska". After looking through your albums, I can see that you're no stranger to good photography. You have a great collection Mindy, and a well developed talent.
Keep shooting & sharing.
First i would like to welcome you to Pbase, its a great site, and you are off to a great start, love all of your galleries. Your flower photos are excellent. And also,
thanks for commenting on my site. I will keep checking in on your PAD. Keep up the
Thank you for the comments and note. I was thinking of getting a new digital camera with a better zoom. Keep up with your photography, I'll keep checking in :)
Mindy - thank's for your comment on my site - I looked at all your galleries and every shot was nice!
Excellent work Mindy, you certainly have the eye for spotting a great image and execute the shots very well. Thanks for posting
Great shots!!!! :)
Thanks visiting, I have found some great shots in your galleries
Keep good work

Hi Mindy, thanks for leaving the comment on my Port Arthur image. I've just been having a stroll through your galleries and I must say you have some absolutely beautiful photos. The Western Landscapes gallery could almost be in Australia :D I'm also a die hard film buff but also enjoy the digital side of things. Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
Nice collection of photos - I especially like your landscapes of the West - awesome!
Thank you for commenting on the pair of Sandhill Cranes coming in for a landing. That is one of my favorite pics. I shot that, and others in November at Bosque Del Apache NWR in New Mexico. These cranes apparently mate for life so I figure this was a good 'ole married couple with the husband squawking at his wife for some reason or other!
There is a companion shot to that one, enjoy:
Really interesting and eclectic photos. Keep posting!
Good start with these galleries.Film has it's place but digital is super convenient.Post processing the images is half the fun although the same can be said of film scans.
Thanks for sharing.I will check back.
This is a fabulous assortment of photographs - such variety - and so well done!! I hope you will sell these as cards and prints -- surely everyone should want both to send and own!!
Great start on your galleries. Cheers.
