Julie Shiel's Profile

About

My name is Julie Shiel and in the past I have been a widely published author and poet. I have worked in various art mediums throughout my life, although my focus has been on photography for quite a while. My photos are often taken in abandoned or forgotten urban settings and I hope give you a glimpse of things few people see. I believe old buildings have a soul of sorts, and my hope is to record a piece of that soul before these places are demolished for strip malls or developments. There is much hidden beauty to be seen.
My photography is always evolving so please stop back often. My facebook page is at http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenBeauty and I often post work in progress and the occasional facebook only special. Please stop in!

Some of my loves in no particular order are animals, reading, writing, gardening, anthropology, botany, the mysterious and beautiful. I am disabled…

Some of my loves in no particular order are animals, reading, writing, gardening, anthropology, botany, the mysterious and beautiful. I am disabled and live in South Carolina with my wonderful husband and a menagerie of pets. In my spare time, I volunteer at the local shelter, photographing and listing animals on petfinder. Part of my income goes towards helping to get shelter animals spayed and neutered, and do what I can to make their lives a little better.

Thank you for browsing my shop and I hope you enjoy my work. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at xenya_x [!at] yahoo.com. I am convo friendly but please do not ask for the locations of my photos.
