Start Here!

Would you please do me a favor? Take a look at my updated “About Page” (Start Here!) and tell me your thoughts. Thank you so much! OOO, I almost forgot, I also gave the blog a little facelift. Do you like it?





My grandmother gave me my first camera when I was 5 years old. Her gift, and adventurous spirit greatly influenced the choices I’ve made in life. I’ve been taking pictures almost every …

  1. It is great. Demonstrates your love of horses, love of photography and zest for life.
    Your grandmother sounded like a great woman, too.
    Oodles of positivity. Is oodles a word? In English or Swedish? Even if it isn’t, you’ve got it! 🙂

  2. Yes I love this. It gives a window into who you are, what you love and how you were influenced. Your Grandmothers sound influence and inspiration have produced a woman with talent and joie de vivre and this shines out of the introduction. I am certain others will be compelled to want to follow and hopefully to purchase your stunning pictures.

    • Thank you so much! My grandmother was an outstanding woman! I would not have the courage I have today if it wasn’t for her. I would of loved to follow her blog!! You would of loved the stories she told. My mom sometimes had to tell her to not make them so, those were obviously the best parts..

      • I know I would have loved her stories … if she influenced you to be the bright, vivacious and talented woman you are … I know I would. Actually I think that grandparents play the most vital role in shaping us if we are fortunate to have good ones. They are parents without the inhibitions and that is priceless!

  3. Your Grandmother did what my Dad did, he gave me my first camera when I was the same age as you. We cherish these gifts, don’t we, Maria…
    Your photos, whatever they are of landscapes, horses or beautiful shots of your adorable little girl reflect a great humanity and sensibility. Stay as you are, Maria, you are a true inspiration…

  4. Love the photos on the about page, and the story of your grandmother. I’d so love to inspire my grandchildren the same way. I only caught one small spelling mistake: you say ‘I don’t have too’ instead of ‘I don’t have to.’ Otherwise it’s perfect. I like the facelift, too.

      • Thanks, Maria. Maybe we can meet up some day, I’m sure we’d have lots to talk about! As for the spelling, it never ceases to amaze me how your brain tricks you into seeing things that are not there. You can look at the page two million times and miss it.

          I know, I always have to read my posts many times, and still I know both spelling and grammar can be improved. I’m thinking that if I just keep doing it, reading, writing, and talking to people, my English will come around a little bit more very day. When I started my very first blog in English (I lived in Sweden then,) my goal was to improve my English.
          I hope you’re having a wonderful day 🙂
