Lorri Carter ~ Kayaker, Photographer and Hater of Paper Plates

I grew up watching my mother shoot an old Rollieflex. I was always fascinated with the mechanics of it and became serious about photography while studying fine art at the University of Nevada. I switched to digital around 2005 and am inspired daily by the beauty all around us in the Ozarks.lorri carter eureka springs ar

I grew up watching my mother shoot an old Rollieflex. I was always fascinated with the mechanics of it and became serious about photography while studying fine art at the University of Nevada. I switched to digital around 2005 and am inspired daily by the beauty all around us in the Ozarks.”

 

 

 

 

And Lorri is inspiring us too! Her eye for photographing nature, sunsets, frost and all the rest of the beauty in the Ozarks is simply awe inspiring.

We are proud to showcase some of the shots Lorri has garnered.

If you happen to drive a Jeep….she’ll wave…..

I never wave at people while I’m driving – not because I’m focused on the road or because I’m a snob – I just don’t pay attention to the cars on the road – I’m in the zone – sorry for not waving. I’m the same way at the supermarket – I rarely notice friends before they notice me – I’m on a mission and just don’t look at people. The exception to this are Jeeps. If you are in a Jeep it’s an unspoken code that I must wave to you. It matters not that I have no idea who you are.”

“I hate paper plates – I would rather run the dishwasher and have my friends eat off of real plates – no matter how casual the occasion. Even if I pick up take out for dinner I put it on a real plate. People are always bringing paper plates to help me out when we have a BBQ or any gathering – I have a whole cabinet full – anyone want them?”

I love cheese cake. I don’t know how to make it – my mom and my friend Debbie made the best ones I’ve ever tasted.”

desert lorri carter eureka springs arThanks Lorri for leaving the desert and bringing your talents to the Ozarks..

When I finished college I couldn’t wait to leave Las Vegas. I don’t miss the busyness of the city but I miss my family and the desert everyday.”
