    I always enjoy looking through your pictures and everyday life. There’s something about them that makes the world seem so simple, wonderful, and calm…

    Hey Tammy, I work with Dee Williams, and while I was just visiting your site today to grab the link for a blog post I’m putting up for her, I wanted to stop and comment because good gravy that buck photo is beautiful. New desktop wallpaper beautiful. Thanks, I’ll be enjoying it for weeks to come.

      Thanks Billy! I appreciate your kind words. I will email you a high res version of the buck photo, that way you can use it for your desktop. 🙂

    Delightful Tammy ! It’s such a pleasure to look at your pictures…There isn’t a single day where I’m not thinking of the kind of life you have you two chosen to live, and you make me travelling and dreaming thru your everyday life pics. I love your new midori journal… how do you like the passport size ? I was thinking of gifting myself a midori (love the leather cover !), but not sure about witch size to choose from : I have a large writing and I need space for extra sketching or doodling…what would be your advice concerning this?

    So keep sharing your amazing photos !

      Thanks for your kind words. I love my Midori. But it’s very tiny. If you have large handwriting, I’d suggest getting the larger size. Hope that helps. 🙂

      Also, I will do a follow up post about my Midori soon.

        Thank you Tammy for your advice, I will definitely go for a bigger size when my moleskine will be completed (BTW I love the medium size moleskine !)

    Hi Tammy, I see a lot of creative development in your photographs over time. I thought these photos you most recently posted were especially enjoyable for me. I think your personal style is being more articulated and it it is a strong, rather unique view of the world you share with us. I have enjoyed being a witness to that development.

      Thank you, Michelle! I appreciate the sweet comment and I’m glad you like my photos. 🙂

    waaaaa, what absolutely gorgeous photos Tammy, you have really captured some amazing light through your lens to make some dreamy images. I love your collage, and have just written a huge essay on these sorts of ideas, so it feels like fate that I come to read your blog and find those words. I’ve copied them down into my notebook so I don’t forget them 🙂 Katie. X

    Hi Tammy,

    I’m really enjoying the photos you posted here – beautiful composition and the color saturation is really striking. I feel like I’m looking out of a window as opposed to looking at a photo. Thanks for sharing!
