A pictorial view of Weathertop Farm, my childhood home. My parents still live here. My mom runs the farm and is a small engine mechanic. My dad is an artist.

I made this as a celebration of their 45th anniversary, my dad's 75th birthday, my mom's 69th birthday and 25+ years of living at Weathertop.


About the Author

Clare Gardner
diazocat13 Minneapolis, MN, USA

I developed an interest in photography at a young age. Starting on a plastic camera with a cube flash, I upgraded to the classic Kodak Disc and finally inherited my mother's lovely old Minolta SLR workhorse.

After college, I attended the Maine Film & Photographic Workshops. In 1996, I moved to New York City.

As a freelance photographer in NYC, my clients included Halston, Bear USA and Weatherproof. In partnership with Joseph Cartright, I tested some of the first professional DSLRs and medium format digital backs.

Moving to Minneapolis reignited my love of photography. Whether working on corporate headshots, fashion, still lifes or portraits, I bring creativity and passion to every project. My clients enjoy a memorable experience on the day, as well as a beautiful and professional end product.

You get a sense of peace on this farm. Love the photos of the animals, of course the cats since my books are written by cats. Check them out too please. A Cat Abroad on the Streets of Heidelberg, But I Thought I was Mommy's Baby and Feline Fractals Fantasy.

Yes, rendering what they know every day into something so beautiful is a tremendous anniversary and birthday present.

First, I am very glad to be the first person to vote for your book.
It is really lovely.
It made me feel strongly: I wish I lived there.
Living in a busy big town as Athens, watching your book a song "the green grass of home" came to my mind, as a perfect music dress to your book.
Well done. May you are always well and happy.
