About Kathleen Thorpe club

Kathleen Thorpe

From: Englewood

Being part of a photo sharing site is the feeling of sharing what I believe to be a part of my soul with those who share the same love of photographic art. It is being alive with art and sharing your love of photography with those who share your love of the art. Participating has expanded my appreciation of photographic viewpoints and excellence from around the world. And for that, I am most humbly greatful and appreciative. I am now looking forward to what the future holds! {:o)

I always had a desire to learn photography, but, as with most of us, work got in the way. A short time after I gave up the corporate world, I plunged into lessons with a very talented and artistic professional photographer. I am now several years into lessons with no intention to stop. I have found that photography and the processing possibilities are a never-ending process, which can be frustrating and satisfying at the same time, and one which I love. Photography satisfies the creative desire within me to produce something of beauty which others will enjoy. Being part of the groups within Ipernity and receiving gracious comments from around the world gives me joy, satisfaction, and inspiration. Now, let's get shootin'!!!
