Everyone knows it's windy -

The soft blues of the sky, ocean and the distant Catalina Island paint a perfect background for the bright hues of a kite blowing against the wind while passersby take in the view at Angel's Gate Park.

MarySue Roberts is an independent professional photographer and writer living in Southern California.

For over three decades, her stories and award-winning images have been sought after by newspapers, magazines, books, corporations, and private collectors.

“With just a twist of creative imagery, inherited Nikons, and an absolute passion for art, my photography often reflects my abstract view of the world - without losing touch with reality,” Roberts said. “The splendor around us begs to be captured and shared whether it is a liner slowly leaving port, children playing, a simple street corner, or my own backyard.”

A graduate of Webster University St. Louis, Roberts is a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA); San Pedro Art Association; Palos Verdes Art Center; Southwest Manuscripters, and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals.
