Editor’s note: This, our second post from Meg Suhr, demonstrates a keen eye for the color and detail of her surroundings. We love the “off the beaten path” nature of this work, and her appreciation for the patina only time and weather can create.

Meg is a nurse who picked up a DSLR camera in mid 2011 while taking a break from work to cope with a severe case of burnout. Her ex-boyfriend, who is a professional photographer, taught her basic theory and mentored her early creative development. Of her choices in subject matter, she says “there’s no rhyme or reason to it, I like what appeals to my eyes, heart, and mind.”
