Brenda has lived in British Columbia all of her life. She has been married to Bill for 39 years, and they have two adult sons. Photography has always been an enjoyable pastime for Brenda, as she likes to keep visual reminders of people she’s met, places she’s visited and events she’s experienced. She still has the first camera that was given to her when she was 9 or 10 years old. Her passion for photography has grown over time and her main focus is now nature and wildlife. In this issue’s My Hometown on page 56, she shares her love of Kelowna’s natural beauty, in words and images.
