Xmas 2012: Photos For Friends

I’ve had a long standing policy against buying friends and family things for Christmas. Most people already have more than enough stuff. I’d rather make a point to share experiences during the year and then send them photographs for Christmas.

This year, I explored castles and  clocktowers in Germany and France with my siblings, spent five days backpacking in the Grand Canyon with Drew, gave thanks on Earth Day with Ashleynearly got trampled by an angry moose and incinerated by lightning in Colorado with Sarah, wrestled alligators with Drew, splashed in the Pacific with Sarah and Paul, pulled some weeds with Frank and Karen, hiked to the Burgess Shale with my dad, strolled around Emerald Lake with my mom, climbed Mount Rundle with Jessie, waded in the Big Blackfoot with Melissa, biked around Bismark with Emily and hiked the Appalachian Trail with Ant and Devin.

Now for Christmas, I’ll send everybody a few high quality, highly framable photos from our grand adventures, along with some suggestions for next year’s rendezvous. Of course, I don’t get to cross paths with everybody in my circle each year and in those cases, I’ll send them lovely photos from some place we might visit together in the future.

If you see a photo you’d love to have or give to a friend, send me an email at theblondecoyote@gmail.com with the caption/ title and the post in which it appears and I’ll send you an invoice via Paypal. I’m sorry I don’t have nifty little “buy now!” buttons to click, I’m just not that e-commerce savvy. I much prefer communicating with real people anyway. :)

Any of my photos on the Blonde Coyote, my website www.marycapertonmorton.com or my Flickr account are fair game. If you’re looking for a shot of some place in particular – a place you’ve been or would like to go with a friend – just ask! I probably have it!

High quality, archival, 8 by 10 prints, professionally printed and signed by yours truly, are $25 each, including shipping and handling. Larger prints and posters are available as well:

8 by 10 for $25
11 by 14 for $75
16 by 20 for $100
20 by 30 for $150

Happy Holidays! M
