I enjoy taking pictures and thought I’d share some of them here! These are pics from my “desktop pictures” folder. Feel free to use them for yours! (Click for larger versions.) If you want to use the photo(s) to make money in any way, please ask my permission. To see my header photos, click here.

I also like playing with house design. Check out this page on remodelling large houses, and this post on tiny houses. 🙂

    Hi there.
    I have been working for past couple of days on an article about flowers. Just right now I accidentally came across your wonderful blog. So I tell you:
    Keep it up!.

    And I’d be honored if you showed your presence every once in a while in my humble blog.

    Dear Teresa,

    This is Sigal Friedmann, I work with graphics for the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC. We’re putting our natural history collections on public display, including our preserved plant specimens, and I’m looking for photos to illustrate what these plants looked like when they were alive. Your beautiful photo of Wild Rose on your blog would add a tremendous amount to our exhibit. Would you be interested in contributing for this purpose? Please let me know.
    Thanks so much!
    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Aloha Teresa,

    I work for PBR HAWAII in Honolulu. We are working with the State of Hawai`i to develop a stormwater impacts assessment guidance document. We would like to use your excellent Maui rainstorm photo in the document as a base for a diagram on nonpoint source pollution. The purpose of the guidance document is solely to educate reviewers of environmental review documents (e.g. environmental impact assessments).

    Please let me know if that is acceptable to you.

    Dear Teresa — Wonderful images. We have traveled some of the same places in the world. May I copy your image of the cat paws in snow? It is for a personal greeting I would send to family and friends with the copy, “Rock, Paper, Cat.” Thank you very much for considering my request.

    Thank you, Teresa, for these. Truly beautiful stuff, and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of your blog. It looks like there’s a ton of stuff there, all well done and well written. Very nice work indeed.*

    *to anyone suspicious, I swear I am not a shill. I only stumbled upon this blog a couple of hours ago, but I am mightily impressed.
