Debbi Brooks, Photographer Extraordinaire

Mother Goose meets so many interesting people everyday! I can barely walk out my front door without running into a famous photographer or world-renown writer or a celebrity race car driver. Today, please hold your applause until the end of my post whilst I introduce you to my friend, Debbi Van Kirk Brooks.

Debbi Van Kirk Brooks, an amazing photographer and such a pretty friend!

Debbi has enjoyed a very long career as a commercial photographer par excellence in the great city of Chicago — her name is very familiar to art directors and creative types in all the advertising agencies in town. Of course, she’s not old enough to know the original Mad Men, but she most certainly has done photo shoots with the Sons of the Mad Men.

Debbi and her charming husband, Doug, completely enjoyed an extended visit to Japan last year to visit friends. Of course, Debbi brought a giant suitcase of camera equipment with her — just in case. And for good reason — Japan is VERY photogenic!

The picture I’ve posted just below is gorgeous, isn’t it? Debbi took this photograph in Nikko, Japan and has entered it in a great photo contest sponsored by World in Focus. (And Doug graciously held the umbrella for Debbi’s shot. 🙂 )

Isn’t this amazing? Check those colors and the soft fog and the rushing river! I want to go to Japan just because of Debbi’s picture.

This is a “people’s choice” contest, and I know you’d want to go to the World in Focus website and vote for her. All you need is your email address to vote for Debbi Van Kirk Brooks. And Mother Goose has even happily provided the link! Just click here (or copy and paste if you prefer…

Dear friends, thank you thank you thank you for helping to give Debbi more “exposure” by voting for her Nikko, Japan picture! And now all together, a round of applause for my photo friend!
