I’m Tammy Strobel. Welcome to my digital home!

I’m an author, photographer, and cat lover.

Hope you have a nice stay!

Wish you were here . . .


Yesterday, we took a red-eye flight from Sacramento to New York City. We didn’t sleep much on the plane, but decided to forgo an afternoon nap and explore New York. We spent the afternoon walking in Central Park, admiring the paintings and sculptures in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and taking hundreds of photos.

Before we left Red Bluff, I decided not to bring my Nikon D5000 to the east coast. Instead, I'm taking photos with my iPhone. I did something similar when I went to Portland earlier this year and loved the experience. I tell my students that they can capture everyday magic without a big and expensive DSLR and my recent trips have reaffirmed that belief. The iPhone camera is a fantastic tool and it’s shown me that photography isn’t about the type of camera I own.

Today, we are traveling by train to Boston and from there we will be heading to Waitsfeild, Vermont for the Tiny House Fair. Logan and I are excited to speak at the fair and I can’t wait to take more photographs!

Next week, I’ll share an essay about my travels on the blog. Stay tuned!
