Former Firnew Artist: Patricia Temples

All my life I have been a Student or an Educator.  That didn’t stop when I retired from my career.  A fresh perspective took me in a different direction of learning and experiencing.  Today I am a “Photographer,” and with that new identity comes an eagerness to share what I learn with my audience.  I consider all my outings with my camera an adventure, and even if I return without meaningful images, I consider the time well-spent.  There are so many exciting things to see and do in our wonderful world.  The camera has given me new eyes with which to enjoy my life.
