Writing and Photography by Tanya Estes
I see the world through a fairy tale lens and I write about and photograph the things that inspire me. I spent many years as a librarian and bookseller and I now delight in watching my son's enchantment from fairy tales each time I hear him say "Fee Fi Fo Fum" as he's climbing a tree. I am reminded that we never outgrow the love of stories, though the formats may change for some. For me it will always be books. I hope you enjoy my words and pictures.
