About the Book
Although I assembled this book of beautiful photography for Josie Young, the photography is all Josie's. It was an honor to assist Josie in putting this book together for the special people in her life.
Josie is an unbelievable individual. Now 75 years old, she is very active and still traveling to see the world and capture the beauty and interesting things around us with her camera.
This book represents a small portion of her collection of fantastic photography assembled as a memento of her many journeys from her native homeland to her adopted homeland, and her many world travels. It is her wish that those special people in her life will enjoy it and remember her fondly as they look through this collection of her work.
Following my retirement and relocation to the Gulf Coast, I immediately began photographing one of my favorite subjects, the birds of the Gulf Coast. I have always enjoyed nature photography, particularly of butterflies, but living in an area with such a plethora of beautiful birds, one cannot resist the urge to capture their beauty. In 2010 I formed Hume Nature Photography with my wife who joined me in capturing the beauty of nature. We are dedicated to capturing the beauty and artistry of nature and hope that our work achieves that goal. The beauty of nature is all around us and our hope is that we can give you a few moments of pleasure while enjoying the great "beauty and artistry of nature" that surrounds us.
