name is Sharon Smith, and I am a retired software support technician. I
had several reasons for creating this website, one of which is to prove that I
haven't lost my skills. That, however, isn't the main reason. The others
create a place to display the best of 30 years (and counting) of
photographs, most of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and of Keweenaw in
particular, including its flora and fauna.
create a journal to keep in touch with my friends. For the winter of
2000 - 2001 this page will be of interest only to those who want to follow my
progress through the treatment for my cancer. After that passes, I will
be moving into the house in Copper Harbor and, I hope, begin to explore
Keweenaw and the rest of the Upper Peninsula in detail. I hope that the
journal will include entries about settling in my house, the building
of my garden, travels around the area, and probably personal opinions.
- To run an almost-live camera in the front windows of my home in
Copper Harbor (looking at the scene which is the background for my home page),
so that I can see what's going on when I'm not there. The camera was
installed in October of 2001, but it is still a work in progress.
that the gallery and the live cam will interest people. As all photographers, I
have my own personal view and some pictures of which I am quite proud. I
hope others will enjoy them as I do.
the spring of 2009, I began selling some of my jewelry on etsy, at
hope you will visit my shop and maybe even purchase some of my jewelry and
(eventually) other things.
