Suzanne Siminger of Tiburon found early artistic inspi- ration while traveling to her grandparents’ house with er parents and brothers. It was on these car trips that
she became mesmerized by the beautiful light effects on the
hills, the sunsets and even the light dancing off passing cars.
Later, she earned a fine arts degree and spent 17 years as a
courtroom and graphic artist for KGO-TV.
“Who can resist
a spring lamb?”
Siminger says of this
piece. “The Poncia
Ranch is located in a
verdant valley, so the
soft green pasture
and misty hills in the
background were too
beautiful to pass up.”
Kentfield’s Miguel Farias moved to Marin when he was 2 and received his first camera when he was 8. He brought his Polaroid Land camera on a third-grade field trip to Point
Reyes and fell in love with nature and photography. Growing up,
Farias was mostly influenced by pop culture, animation, science
fiction and punk rock.
“This photo was taken on a clandestine early-morning foray to
Point Reyes to pick huckleberries for a pie to be baked later that
day,” he says.
