Summer Book Get-Away

My step daughter, Lily, is a photographer and also teaches photography at Columbia College in Chicago. This is a preview of her new book of photographs taken in and around Pavones, Costa Rica. Her sister lives there, and Lily has spent quite a bit of time in Costa Rica traveling and photographing. We've been to visit Pavones, and Lily gorgeously captures the beauty of the area and people. If you click on the book title in red, it will take you to blurb where you can see it full screen.


This next book was done by my husband, Jim Mayfield, for me for my birthday. You may have seen my previous birthday post about turning 60. This book is a tribute to our home and life together. Jim has been a photographer for 40 years. He currently free lances and teaches photography at Drury University.


Hope you enjoyed my little summer book get-away. And thanks for allowing me to show off my two most awesome professional family photographers.....

Stunning Dulcy, you have two fantastic photographers. It struck a chord; I am the daughter of one photographer and married to another, something that makes my mother laugh!

What wonderful gifts, especially the book from your husband. Does he have a brother? just a joke! (: I was thinking about you today, Dulcy, with this painting I am working on. I think that it would be a good pastel challenge. I'll photograph the set up tomorrow. Take care.
