Photo Safari 2015

Sandy Lawton, of Arro Design, Kirsten Seibert, of Broadleaf Landscape Architecture and I gave a PHOTO SAFARI, which included tours of Sandy and Kirsten's home and in their barn where they are building a new home, complete with beautifully colored concrete kitchen counters. Then we drove to see Sandy's fabric formed concrete TreeHouse, and Kirsten's well designed very steep sloped landscape with pergula, We had a magnificent lunch, and finally camera raw classes by Carolyn L. Bates Photography.
