Photographing Nature : Making Lemonade
Carolyn became serious about photography after retiring from Hays High School.
Shortly, thereafter, she began participating in art shows at Kerrville, Salado, Rockport, and Gruene. Now, she has retired again.
Realism that shows the gentle and beautiful aspects of nature best describes Carolyn’s photography. When the viewer makes a personal connection with the photograph she feels she has been successful.
Carolyn’s photos have been published in Hill Country Magazine, Hill Country Alliance Calendars, Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine, and Cowboys and Indians Magazine. They have also been in gallery exhibitions at the Rockport Center for the Arts, A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas Photographic Society: 21, and the Naturescapes Exhibits at the Walker’s Gallery in San Marcos.
Some of the businesses that have a collection of her photos include: Airport Embassy Suites in San Antonio; Lexus and Subaru Dealerships at the Dominion in San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley; Dr. Layfield’s Orthodontics in New Braunfels; Hocheim Prairie Insurance in Cuero; and, Gruene River Grill in Gruene.
