Assignment # 3. 

Goliath and Bebe's World has had a rough year. Lydia Cladek , the benefactor and property owner of the 45 acre sanctuary, is now under investigation for an alleged Ponzi scheme that has left 330 animals in harms way.

If the sanctuary cannot raise enough money, $197, 000 to be exact, the animals might have to be euthanized and operations will be shut down. The staff have pet adoptions, which happen every Sunday at the Pet Supermarket in St. Augustine, Fl, to give prospective owners a chance to find a new furry friend.

A relationship with the camera....

For our first assignment we are supposed to take a self portrait. 

I enjoy taking pictures of things, people, places, etc, but taking pictures of myself is hard. I want to capture who I am - a strong independent person who loves life.  Here are some of my self portraits. 


Here are some others I have taken in the past:
