Part of what Cynthia likes to capture in her photography is what she and her father started doing when she was a wee little one. They would travel around the countryside in southwest MN looking for abandoned houses and farmsteads. To this day, the excitement of seeing these abandoned or neglected properties is beyond any words that could be written. He would remind Cynthia that there are stories behind these places and sometimes, they would even make up their own.
In her words
I am fortunate to have found someone who can share the excitement of back-roading and photography with me; we tied the knot last November. Dan always has a way to make me smile. We share our home with two adorable, stubborn, and mischievous Dachshunds – Tindra and Audrey. They become very excited, and somehow know, when they get to go on a photography outing with us. We are proud to be owned by a Dachshund or two :-)
Photography allows me to view the world differently as there is beauty all around us. With creativity, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and sometimes this allows us to turn any ordinary item into a piece of art. I encourage you to open your eyes and see the beauty around you in everything and everyone.
