About Anne Freeman Images: The Art of the Outdoors
“Travel is a wonderful addition to anyone’s life journey, as it can bring us out of ourselves to discover that our tiny portion of the world doesn’t have to lay sole claim on us … we are free to open ourselves to new ideas, new ways of doing things, and new ways of seeing the world.”
Greetings! There are few things more beautiful and interesting than the great outdoors. Each of us has within a “journey” of sights, sounds and visions from our life that features our interaction with the outdoors. My hope is that you will find enjoyment in the photos of flora and fauna and ourselves presented on my website and this journal. Join me as I explore the world around us – maybe you’ll find a few new images to add to your life’s journey …
I’m new to the blogosphere, although I’ve been a writer for many years. In fact, I write every day for a living (technical writer), am a songwriter (Country), and have worked as a music journalist (over a hundred articles published). For several years, I was editor in chief of MusicDish, one of the premier online music business journals.
Hence, when I decided to create a blog, I wanted to focus on something other than writing. Photography is a new love, and that is my focus. I purchased a camera two years ago in preparation for an upcoming safari to the legendary Serengeti (it was fabulous), and I haven’t put down my camera since then. Still learning the ropes, but I’m sure enjoying swinging on them, despite all the tangles …
Not surprisingly, I sneak a bit of writing onto my blog now and then. I’m developing a series of short stories for my fictional character, singer/songwriter Rett Bonneville. The short stories are a new project, and I’ll post them on this blog. I expect that Rett will demand her own blog one of these days. She is a performer, after all, and you know how performers are about sharing the spotlight. To view her stories, place your mouse over Rett Bonneville Short Stories link under the header photo, or click here to read the first story in the series, “The Small Window.”
I reside in the lovely rolling hills of northwestern New Jersey. I should use the word bucolic to describe the area, but bucolic always seems like a disease to me. Not a good word/meaning match. I do a lot of local photography because it’s just so darn pretty here. Aside from my safari shots, most of what you will find on my blog is the result of many afternoons meandering along back country roads, and my photos of the wonderful Jersey Shore.
