The Talented & Amazing 
Cheryl From Deckside Thoughts...
*Fun Bits About Cheryl*
Your Name ~ Cheryl @ Deckside 
Cherl can be found via her amazing blog at Deckside Thoughts 
  Bits about you / your blog 
 Feminist. New Englander. Nature photographer. NASCAR/Jeff 
Gordon fan. Quirky and unpredictable blogger. Writer of really bad haiku. 
 What’s Your favorite thing to shoot ? 
 Anything and everything that lives, grows, or moves outside. If I had to 
name just one thing out there, it would be birds, especially those in flight. 
 What photography is/means to you ? 
 I'm introverted. I'm also terribly shy around people I don't know. As small as a camera 
is compared to a human, you might be surprised at how easy it is to hide behind a 
camera. I've used photography to record memories of my family, places I've visited, 
and the amazing sights I've seen. These days, I'm more inclined to photograph the 
things that leave me in awe. Shooting using an extremely high pixel setting means 
I can enlarge an image to see all the intricate details of a feather, the eyes 
of a honey bee, or the lopsided grin of a child. 
 Your favorite shot you took (Ever)
I've owned a camera since I was 9. Choosing one out of the hundreds of thousands 
of photos I've taken isn't possible. My favorite photos were all taken when I used 
film and knew absolutely nothing about rules or techniques or photo editing 
software. Here's a photo, titled "Willet Horking a Crab," that pretty 
much sums up who I am and why I love photography today.  
 Photographers you look up to/ inspire you ? 
 Ruth Orkin and Henry David Thoreau. Orkin was well-known for her celebrity 
photography but it's her spontaneous shots of people that inspires me. Thoreau used 
words to create photographs of the natural world he so revered. His wisdom has 
taught me to tread lightly ~ to only take photographs and leave only footprints. 
 What are you shooting w/ ? 
 Nikon D40X usually with the 55-200 mm lens attached. 
 Your future goals in your photography 
I'm being pushed and pulled in several directions by well-meaning friends and family 
members to publish photo books, show my photos in a local gallery, photograph 
road racing (running), and sell my work online. I know my work is getting 
better and when it's good enough for me, I'll take that leap.
Thanks SO much for guest hosting Cherl. YOU are so talented and it's 
exciting to have you join us this week. Can't wait to see your picks ;))
