It all stared with a pair of pretty, pointy-toed, red high heels. After using them in my annual Christmas card, they were a great inspiration after getting so many compliments. I decided to try using them in clover for a St. Patricks Day card with some crazy leprechan socks. Then it was candy corn and skeletons on my socks for Halloween. Soon it became every Holiday including birthdays, stepping in a cake, weddings, rice of course and many, many more. I have almost 25 different shoe cards. And it is so much fun to keep adding to the collection. I just added "cashoes" cashews, of course. My photos are unretouched digital prints. No photoshop here. I really am stepping in Birthday cakes, cement, coffee beans, etc.!
I love living in the beautiful Napa Valley. With the vibrant yellow mustard in the Spring and the fiery vineyards in the Fall. It is a photographers dream come true. I could not help but add some non-shoe images. I hope that you enjoy looking through my very first web site. This is just a starter. I am open to suggestions. Enjoy. Fran
Mustard Bike was entered into the Napa Valley Mustard Festival Photography Contest in 2008 at Mumm Napa. I was very proud to have my photo in their beautiful gallery. I never took it home. It was sold off the wall! I saw this Bike sitting on a street in St. Helena and took a picture of it without the Mustard and noticed the bright yellow rims. I found out who owned it and borrowed it for this shot.
