  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking a couple posts! I’ve heard Austin is a big cycling community–I’d love to visit one day!! Best of luck with your photography!! I liked the pictures you posted so far!

  5. Heather, I’m a fan of this blog! your photos are truly beautiful and inspire me a lot (although I’m still soooooo far from shooting so well!). so, I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! See here for more details and to pass it on if you accept it http://lespetitspasdejuls.wordpress.com/2012/11/22/follow-your-inspiration/

  6. gorgeous photos and i love your website! i’m a novice when it comes to photography and will look to yours for inspiration!


    December 10, 2012 at 8:48 pm

  7. The name of your blog certainly lives up to the title — your photos are certainly vivid (I used to be a wedding photographer — back in the days when the earth was still cooling and dinosaurs roamed the earth).

    December 21, 2012 at 7:35 pm

  8. Austin sounds like a place I would like.

    December 22, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    • It’s definitely is a fantastic place visit. I bet you would enjoy a break from that cold in NY.

      January 2, 2013 at 6:04 pm

  9. Thanks for the like. Nice photos on your site. Beautiful people!

    January 5, 2013 at 10:37 pm

  10. Vivid is an excellent name for your work. I live and work in Houston but every chance we get we visit Austin…what a town. Well done Heather.

    January 12, 2013 at 8:31 am

  11. Heather, thanks for the “likes”. Your photography is beautiful and dynamic…a quick and insightful lens. We are just blogging along on our adventure, now day 120! We have lodged our Tramper in an RV park on a little hill near Monarch, CO. We hope to ski till we’ve had enough (feel free to join us), then start asking, “where should we go tomorrow?” Loosely we hope to amble down to Moab, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon and roll around some more till the money runs out before we have to head East and get jobs again. What a blessing its been already. We may be buying a newer camera, ours are point and shoot digitals from 10 years ago; I imagine progress has been made, eh?
    The people we meet continue to give us faith in humankind! The places we see show us there’s hope, pristine is still out there!

    Great display of your beautiful work. My sister lives in Austin now..super cool, hip area!

    January 15, 2013 at 9:13 am

  13. Very nice work! Love the cyclocross and Dirt Derby photos! I’m guessing cold press coffee is much better in 90-degree weather than it is in the -22F we’re having here in Winnipeg.

    January 21, 2013 at 10:50 am

  14. Lovely photos you’ve got here. Great work!

    January 21, 2013 at 3:27 pm

  15. The sharpness and depth in your photography is worth a thousand words…Keep up the great work..If I may ask you which camera are you using?

    January 21, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    • I really appreciate the kind words. I shoot with all Sony digital and have for almost 5 years now.

    Thank you so much for liking my blog. Wow, you are some photographer! In particular I love your portraits and action photos. I wish good cameras with their lenses weren’t so HEAVY! I only take a light pocket camera on my hiking adventures for that reason.

    July 8, 2014 at 2:25 pm

  79. Aloha Heather,
    Thank you for ‘liking’ my recent golf blog post. I can’t decide whether I’m flattered or embarrassed that someone of your talent looked at the pictures I took while playing golf.
    At the start of each game I have a vision of the shots I want. But I’m also in the game, and after my first three putt about all I can remember is to put the sun behind me and something pretty behind them.
    However, I have studied the photographs here and tried to determine what makes each so interesting. Just maybe that exercise will improve the pictures I take.
    A Hui Hou (until next time),

  83. Hi Heather, so happy to have visited you here. Your photos are spectacular! I really enjoyed some of your more candid portrait shots. People are such fascinating things aren’t they? So much can be told with the posture of a hand, or the proximity of the characters. I love the story that your medium shows. Thank you, Kazza

    November 30, 2014 at 9:03 pm

  84. Thank-you for stopping by my site and liking a post of mine. I LOVE your photography and the notes and quotes that you post with them. I have a son currently living in Houston so if we come into Austin for a visit I would love to stop by your studio! Sincerely, Mary

    August 26, 2019 at 5:45 pm

  101. Thanks for reading (and enjoying) my poem, Now I must see some of your photography. You may like seeing (and photographing) some of the sights out here at Los Perdidos on Dead Man’s Creek.. Just north of Dripping Springs.

    Hi Heather! Your photography is inspirational. Thank you for the like on my WordPress/2inspire4ward. I’ve experienced some hardships, was recently reminded about my blog and found it. I saw your like, decided to check out your blog and in spite of working & attending college full-time have been inspired to pick up where I left off in my journey. May your journey be blessed, Heather.
