"I carry my camera (an 8 year old Olympus Camedia C-5050) with me always and I enjoy most documenting daily life - my home, my family of animals, my tangled garden and the scenes and vignettes I find out and about on my twice daily jaunts, with Winnie & Piper, around our little village by the sea. I am crazy about animals and nature and I keep a visual journal of this amazing life of mine at my blog 29blackstreet.blogspot.com. Winnie and I are thrilled to be a part of this fantastic fundraiser." - Susan
