A little about me:
My name is Kimberly Crick and I'm addicted to beautiful places! I have gone back and forth between living in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest, driving the 2,400 mile stretch
four times. In 2004 I was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkins Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes.) It has forever changed me for the better, as things that are important
become clear when you think you'll never do/see them again. Once my chemotherapy and radiation treatment was completed, I picked up and moved to the Portland Oregon
area after living near Detroit Michigan my whole life. A decision I will never regret. There are many beautiful places in the USA that I am so thankful to have seen. I have never
seen as much condensed beauty as there is in Washington, Oregon and California areas anywhere else. I highly recommend seeing as much of the West coast as
possible in your life.
I started this website for my art, so that I could work from home while ill, selling rubber stamps, molds and other craft supplies. I've always been attracted to artwork as a way
to bring happiness and a sense of beauty into life. Now that I am feeling more recovered from my illness, it is a goal of mine to spend some quality time appreciating nature.
I'm not sure if anyone else has said these words, but parks are the gallery of nature. All the finest creations in a row for us to see. It's my favorite art.
(Note: I am limited to the USA for my travels. If you would like to recommend a travel location within the United States to me, please feel free to email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org - thank you! ) On my to-do list are Alaska and Yellowstone National Park, WY.
The camera used for these older travel photos:
Just in case anyone wonders what I've got, I used a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 for most of my pictures throughout this website. While being decent for outdoor scenery
pictures, i really love it for macro (close up) photography. I bought this camera for taking pictures of flowers and of craft projects about two to 10 inches from the lense. This
camera was a 5 mega pixel camera with a 10 x optical zoom, which I used exclusively for a few years (until a few technological upgrades went by.)
In 2009 I upgraded to the 9 mega pixel Panasonic Lumix TZ5 These cameras are in the $200 to $300 range of standard "point and shoot" digital cameras (easy to use for
everyone!) This camera functions great in well-lighted situations, such as daylight outdoors or taking product photos in a light box. (Night shots are best when using a tripod
and involve tweaking camera settings, more for the experienced photographer.) Like most p&s digital cameras, this one struggles in low light/indoor shots without flash
(noise/grain.) For macro shots and outdoor zoom it is fantastic though!
UPDATE 2013: I have begun putting together my professional photography portfolio on flickr. I have invested in a DSLR camera at this
point (Canon T5i) and am spending more time doing bird watching and wildlife photography.
