So long, Maryland . . .

From our old home to our new home, Wisconsin!

From our old home to our new home, Wisconsin!

So long Maryland!

After nearly 47 years of living in Frederick, MD my family and I have moved to Wisconsin.

Why Wisconsin? My wife's family lives here. We want our daughter to grow up near her cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Wisconsin is also a beautiful state. In the short amount of time we have lived here, I have discovered some breathtaking sights. I am continually adding to our list of places I would like to visit, and friends and family are constantly adding to that list with their favorite recommendations.

I retired from teaching (after 26 years) and decided it was time for a change, a huge change! I have taken a step back from my career as an educator, and, with the encouragement of my family and friends, I am pursuing a greater passion: Photography. With fewer distractions, I am able to consider what I want to do with my photography. There are projects I want to complete and new opportunities to explore. It's an exciting endeavor and one for which I am grateful. I look forward to exploring, photographing, and making new memories in our new home.

What are your favorite places to visit in Wisconsin? Do you have any special memories or traditions in Wisconsin? If you were to have photographs taken in Wisconsin where would you want to go and more importantly, why?
