Years ago I lived in Fullerton, California. I raised my kids and launched my photography career there. For some reason, unbeknown to me, I started documenting the city with my camera in 2000.
I spent early Saturday mornings, before the kids needed me, walking historical streets of Fullerton, looking for scenic photos and landmarks that needed to be frozen in time. I found myself in the middle of busy Harbor Blvd. photographing Angelo's and Vinci's Ristorante or climbing a ladder to capture a memory of close-knit neighbors on their street in Golden Hill. Later on, I worked at the Fullerton Arboretum where my love of photographing flowers and landscapes had it's start.
After years of exhibiting this collection for Fullerton residents, it now just lives on my hard drive. I feel a responsibility to preserve this hidden treasure for whomever might find it valuable someday.
Thank you Fullerton for being such a great city and for giving this mom and her four children some of our most memorable years. You will forever be in my heart (and on my hard drive.)
