Cheryl Pennington is multi-talented, a well trained and seasoned Ophthalmic technician in the field of Ophthalmology, an imaginative artist who paints, sketches and makes jewelry, a creative writer, an energetic cook/baker, and a prolific photographer. She has a deep desire to connect with others creatively. Her goal is to live life fully in the present moment. She believes the present is the only one which truly exists.
Cheryl started blogging in 2012
“to honor my passion for photography and share precious moments from the paradise home we enjoyed for 8 months in Costa Rica.“
She’s born under the Cancer astrological sign; ethereal, obstinate, hopeful, romantic, dependable, loyal and steadfast. Not a lover of change. Her husband, a Virgo, quite the opposite, “a wanderer, dreamer, and seeker of adventure and change.” Hence her 8 month adventure living in Costa Rica.
When she photographed the last sunset of 2016, her thoughts on “marking of time” turned from it makes us harried, impatient, fearful and old, to viewing it as
“the rise and set of the sun as markers of opportunity, the chance for a fresh start with every rising disc of fire and the sweet relief of repose when it slips into the earth again.”
Her photography subjects are widespread, birds, flowers, people, and moons. She takes photos of the moon every chance she gets. She loves to
“glimpse her face in the shadows of the trees; and like a voyeur, she watches us from the velvet night canvas.”
