A friend of mine is a professional photographer. I got to know her because she also volunteers at the local animal shelter. Her volunteer work includes taking pictures of the shelter animals for their website and, I gotta tell you, a good picture really increases their chance of adoption.

She also does pet photography and makes pretty good money at it. I believe she charges $150 per session. For an extra charge, her customers may get copies of the pictures on t-shirts and coffee mugs. Pet portraits can be promoted at local animal shows and by donating sessions to fund raisers for shelters and rescue groups. Naturally, much of her business comes from referrals.

Awesome - at the coffee shopt this morning DW and I were talking with friends and telling them that we are already counting down the days to our 6 week vacation in England in July, 2010 !!

Last time we went to Scarborough we stopped on the way at the foot of the "white horse" and hiked up to the top.

And for good measure I've thrown in a couple of photos of my home town, Seaham Harbour, where we always stay with my family for a few days when over in England (the church is over 600 years old).

We love walking and hiking, and on a recent trip we hiked a round trip of 12 miles on the N. Yorks moors along Blakey Ridge, from Rosedale Abbey, stopping for fish and chips and a pint or 2 of ale at the The Lion Inn on the way.

Alan, ahhhh, the simple joy of rambling the moors and finding a Free House, for a pinta. Maybe a meat pie and some mushy peas.

Here is what you are gonna find in York on a Saturday, this cart has the best bacon and egg butty in Yorkshire, and the center of York facilities are busy on Market Day on Saturdays. Many a homemade pasty to be bought. Nothing like a hot Cornish pasty.
