About

It’s a phenomenal world we live in. I deeply appreciate it, even on cranky days, and I invite you to wander through it with me.

I live in America’s Pacific Northwest, near Seattle. Before moving here in 2012 I lived in New York City, so I’ve experienced a powerful change in environment and photographic opportunities. I am not a gear nut, but if you’re interested, I’m currently (2017) using an Olympus OM D1, and an assortment of lenses. I use Lightroom and NIK Color Efex & Silver Efex for processing.

My education is in Fine Arts (BFA from School of Visual Arts, NY, NY) and Social Work (MSW from Fordham University, NY, NY).  And a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Garden, NY, NY

I get out as often as I can to breathe the clean air and explore my surroundings with an open mind and fresh eyes.

Photographs can be ordered,  framed or not, on a variety of surfaces  – at my website:   lynn-wohlers.artistwebsites.com

  1. Thanks for all those wonderful comments on my blog. Glad you liked my photography – It’s become a bit of an obsession! I shall explore your site too, and the first page looks great. Love the guy in the glasses!

  2. I’m going to have to spend more time here, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve looked at and I’ve only just begun! I think I also relate to the idea that you haven’t felt a need to “define” and therefore, limit, your blog. I’ll be looking forward to future posts.

  3. You’ve visited my blog several times, gracing me with some lovely “likes” – why I wasn’t visiting back is a mystery to me – your blog is powerful, evocative and surprising. It may have been my far too busy fall semester – so now, I am catching up and have hit your “follow” button. I look forward to visiting often 🙂

  4. Belated Christmas wishes to you Lynn, and best of all things for the New Year. May your wanderings bring you inner quiet and may your observations shine through your lense for us all to see. Looking forward to more.l

    • It’s not too late for good wishes, ever. Thank you! What a gracious wish! Sometimes my wanderings are really exciting – so much so that I blur pictures! Exciting in the moment, but the overall effect of having the time to wander and take pictures, and then to post them and get wonderful comments like yours, is of greater inner peace I’m sure.

  5. Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. And thanks so much for introducing yourself to me. I love your photography and your style of writing, so I can’t wait to follow you in 2013!! So nice to meet you, Lynn! 🙂

      • That’s okay, Lynn! I’m so far behind now on reading blogs; it seems since my family arrived, we’ve been packing in so much, I hardly have time to breathe. Hopefully I can get caught up on life after they leave Friday night. 🙂 I really do hope 2013 will bring some positive changes in my life….

    • Thank you – you guys are the greatest – I appreciate the vote of confidence, though I confess that technically I don’t know how to accept an award that way – but it’s the thought that counts for sure.

  6. Hello Lynn – I’m glad you stopped-by my place today…very happy that you let me know you were there by leaving a comment, too. It seems that we share a little bit in common with our relatively recent moves from former home states to new ones and marveling at the wonderful nature we have found in our new places. Your photos are very compelling…and make me want to come back again and again until I’ve seen all of them. You have a good eye…and I enjoy your words, also. Thank you for visiting…and following, too. I will be here often…take care…Scott.

      • Lynn, as you can see, it’s been 4 months since I was nominated for this one and I’m just now getting around to accepting it! I have another one that’s even older, but it has so many steps to it that I keep putting it off. Some people accept several awards in one post. I’m on the fence about them because they’re so time-consuming, but it’s nice overall to get some recognition, to get the badge and to recognize my other favorite bloggers. 🙂

    • Oh my, that’s music to ears! Thank you, Jutta! It doesn’t hurt that I’ve moved to an inspiring place. And then there is this larger sphere of bloggers like you from all over the world that keeps everything interesting.

  8. Hello Lynn, I’ve just nominated you for the Liebster award. Please go to my blog and look for the post “Mein Liebster”. It’ll tell you what you have to do in order to really “own” this award. Enjoy, Jutta

  9. Dear Lynn,
    thank you very much for visinting my blog and commenting.
    I really like to visit your blog regularly and it`s always worth while looking at your pictures and reading the texts.
    Thank you very much,
    Have a great Sunday

  10. Hi Lynn:
    I’m looking forward to following your work. I wandered around your site a lot tonight- and felt alternately very inspired and humbled. I promise to come back soon and share some of my thoughts/feedback but for now just want to say hello and thank you for stopping by my blog earlier today.
    Jason

    • Thanks Dave – you’re in a special place – it’s fascinating. The first day is worth it when it leads to days like the one you describe where you & your students went out & learned about the 3 suns.

  11. Lovely blog ma’am! And love the way you wrote about Establishing a Point Of View. Certainly a great way to photograph places or things which are frequently photographed, albeit with a different perspective. Thank you for the inspiration to think differently.

  12. Thanks very much for the recent visit to my blog. It brought me here and I’ve really enjoyed perusing your recent entries, particularly those detailing your visit to the various parts of Olympic National Park. I was last there in July of 2009 and spent some time poking around a lot of the places you covered, including (but not limited to) Hurricane Ridge, Rialto Beach and the Hoh Rainforest.

  13. I have forgotten where you are based… came to look at ‘about’ but couldn’t see what I was looking for. Where are these fantastic forests?

  14. I bet the air is nicer in Seatle than New York? I myself was raised in London and moved to Somerset which is similar to your move really. Although i visit London i still i cant wait to get back to the fresh air again in Somerset. Great blog by the way

    • Oh yes, air quality is something I notice!! I like the city and the country – always have – but life in the big city got to be more stressful than it was worth and I’m much happier here.Thank you very much for taking the time to comment!

  15. Can I just say how much I love your photography, I feel like I’m being taken on a personal tour of your garden every time I log on to your blog, I really should make a cup of tea to take with me as I wander!

    • Well, that’s terrific! “My” garden is many different places, since I’m in an apartment these days. SO it may be a botanic garden or a park or whatever, and it may feel like “my” garden because in many ways it does become that as I get involved so closely with it when I take pictures. A love affair, for sure. Thank you.

  16. I really appreciate your visiting my humble blog today and leaving such kind, thoughtful comments. Your blog, I’m finding, is a breath of fresh air to me. The beach is fabulous but I love a deep, green, luscious wood. Thank you for sharing your world!

  17. Hello Lynn. Thank you for your kind comment on my ‘Commemorating WW1 and the fallen: 1’, through Broken Light. Like your work here.

  18. This is my first comment to you. I am an amateur photographer and I took a picture of fog last week and wanted to put it on instagram. Many instagrammers look up poems, song lyrics, etc. to give the picture more feeling. Today was my first day in doing this, looking up lyrics, when I found yours about taking photographs in the fog. I so would like to use your poem to highlight my picture with your permission and of course credit to you, for those wonderful words. I am awaiting to hear from you. My instagram handle is gsk1951. I have not posted my fog photo yet, of course. The credit would go to Lynn Wohlers? Regards, Glenda K.

    • What a surprise that you came upon my work. Maybe it’s meant to be. I appreciate your crediting me, and I hope I can see your photo. I confess, I have not used instagram yet – maybe I’ll try soon! Thank you, Lynn

  19. Hi Lynn…Thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments (and thanks of course to Tina :-)). Yours looks like a treasure trove and I look forward to exploring it in detail. Already I see so much that deserves my full attention. With warmest good wishes…Andrew

  20. Thank you for following my blog. I, too, have lived in contrasting environments (& will so do so again), and, like you, appreciate how that stimulates us to “fresh eyes.” Did you notice the closely-related quote by Marcel Proust on my home page? (“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”)

  22. Thanks for all the kind words,
    I am not a great one for hitting ‘like’ buttons but do love exploring new & interesting images of which you seem to have many.
    Will work through your past postings with great pleasure, like a journey of exploration.

  23. Hi Lynn, Thanks for all your lovely recent comments on my posts and for having taken the time to explore my blog of experiments. It’s always interesting to hear others’ views, and yours is certainly refreshing. Cheeri-pip! Janina
    🙋
    I look forward to viewing your new world through your eyes.
