Happy September to you!
I've previously mentioned that I enjoy photography. It, like writing, captures a moment in time. Just as writing is a lens through which to see the characters' lives and the plots they enact, photography is a means of viewing life.
I've also used photography for research purposes in my writing. This is particularly useful as a historical fiction author, to view another time, the clothing, the cities and the world in which your characters live. Many historic archives are now available online or can be found in museums and galleries.
National Geographic, as I've previously mentioned, is my favorite magazine. Some of my photography is now on National Geographic's website! If you'd like to take a look, you can do so here.
My best to you all,
