The Story Behind the Logo of Liesl Walsh Photography
Welcome to my website! I am excited to share with you the many treasured moments and breathtaking scenes I have discovered while taking photos in Florida. Florida constantly inspires me. I have many more photos to add to my website, so please come back often to see recently added photos. I will be adding photos of animals, popular Florida locations, beaches, architecture, and historical places. Most of my photos are from Florida, but I will be adding some photos from Pennsylvania, Michigan, and other locations.
So what is the story behind my logo? I chose a photo that meant a lot to me. It goes way back to the beginning of my photography journey. It is a purple Japanese iris that grew in my garden before I lived in Florida. I'll never forget the day I got the iris. I filled my car entirely with them, covering all the floors and seats. The car weighed down and smelled like earth. I surrounded my garden with them, and they spread quickly, being a focal point of the garden.
I documented the growth of my garden often with photography. I was amazed at how it changed over the years, getting more full and lush with time. It was a delight. This is when my husband gave me my first digital camera. And a whole new world of editing opened up to me. I could turn my photos into paintings and drawings! As a former art teacher, this was exciting! I turned this photo into a watercolor.
When we moved to Florida, I began entering photo competitions, and this was one of my first entries. It did very well! I challenged myself to enter each month, purchased my first DSLR camera, and by the end of the year I had 30 ribbons, a photo at the King Center Gallery of Brevard College, and three photos displayed in the Vero Beach Art Museum. Since then I have had photos printed for publication in the Vero Beach Magazine and Florida Currents Magazine.
It has been a fun journey using my artist eye in photography. Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy the photos!
