Hello, and thank you so much for visiting my photography site. I am Eleanor Caputo, and as of 2022, I am 61 years old. I have been a photography enthusiast for my entire life. My father was interested in it when I was growing up. Not only were we his models, but I used to love to watch the pictures slowly appear on the paper in the developer tray. It was like magic! There was often a string of pictures hanging from wooden clothespins drying.

Later in life, I used to hike all over the California Sierras taking photos of the fall colored aspens and the beauty of Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Mono Lake, Bodie Ghost Town and the Eastern Inyo Valley.

Now, I live in Iowa and the scenery is quite different and beautiful in a Midwest sort of way. Mountains and waterfalls lay way to America's heartland of barns, farms, corn and soybean and amazing stormy skies.

Early years: I was honored and lucky enough to win a few awards and be published in a few magazine and photography books throughout my career. Some of my work is even on a book cover or two. My image of Mono Lake titled "This Desolate Earth", won the grand prize in Outdoor Photographer Magazine, way back in 2009. In my early years, my macro image of a praying mantis eating a fly called "Devoured" made its way onto the Kodak Jumbotron in Times Square as POTD. That was fun! The caption read: Eleanor Caputo Devours NYC. 😊
Now I am semi-retired. I have a condition that limits me quite a bit, but I still like to get out there as much as possible and capture fleeting moments in time to share with others. 

I hope you enjoy the way I see the world's beauty. 🦋

Beauty is all around us. We just have to choose to see it.🌼
