Welcome to my Willow Fine Art Photography site and to my Blog page....."The Roses and Thorns of Life"

Roses for the work I do other than photography, as Proprietor of Briar Rose Reiki.  I am a Certified Reiki Master, specializing in the care of animals through Reiki and Intuitive Communication.  You may read more of this @ www.briarrosereiki.com

 

I divide my time between a suburb of NYC, and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where my home once offered shelter to a Confederate Brigadier General and his Cavalry during the first few days of July, 1863....remembered in history as the Battle of Gettysburg.

As a kid, I adored Danny Thomas.  He didn’t just tell a joke; he told a story.  I love to tell stories, both with a pen, and with a camera.  Pages of stories can be expressed in one moment on film; I hope my photos evoke emotions, memories, or a story or two in your mind.  One of my favorite photographers is Simon Marsden.  His legacy of work will live on; he brought stories and emotions to me with each haunting photograph and image he captured.

…….. Stories are meant to be told ………..

.......Images are meant to be captured.......

Thank you Danny Thomas for igniting the spark of storytelling within a little girl…..I like to think you would have smiled at some of my stories, too.  And thank you, Simon Marsden, for opening a world of wonder through your lens to my eyes.

So if you enjoy photograpy, the supernatural, history, the antics of pets, or the mysteries of Reiki and unseen energy…….or if you just enjoy browsing down memory lane with me……pick a page………enjoy the story.......there will be many stories to tell and many photos to see....

Namaste Friends……..

My Home in Gettysburg

A wispy presence captured by my camera at the Grove, in Gettysburg"Wispy Ghost" My Home in Gettysburg

I am proud to be the owner of a restored, historic farmhouse in Gettysburg.  During July, 1863, my home served as sanctuary to a Confederate Brigadier General and his men.  I respect this hallowed ground and love to share the history and beauty of these rolling hills of Pennsylvania in my photos and prints.

I love to walk the Battlefields and capture the poignancy of this place; so beautiful and still except for the strong winds that usually blow....perhaps carrying echoes of sadness and war........

Paranormal enthusiasts flock to Gettysburg; it is considered to be one of, if not, the most haunted American town....and one of the world's most haunted destinations.

I can vouch for what I have experienced myself; my home has revealed some mystifying  occurrences; I have also encountered spiritual phenomenon in the inns and woods of Gettysburg.

Please browse through my photos in both the Gettysburg and the Paranormal Galleries.  Once someone visits Gettysburg; they always feel compelled to visit again.....whether it is the beauty or the hauntedness of the place........or both.

Namaste,

Shirl"Foreboding"
