Welcome to my Photography Pursuit!
In our busy lives we often forget: Beauty is all around us. No moment in space and time is ever the same. Just like no two snow flakes are never exactly the same.
Photography is a pursuit in many ways - catching the perfect moment, the perfect subject, the perfect lighting, the perfect you name it.
Most of the times things don't play out and what is there is just what's there. But there is always an image to be taken to reflect the moment.
It just takes an open mind to see the beauty. And sometimes it is just perfect for the subject captured in the shot.
My pursuit in photography is to capture the world around me and share it with you through my pictures.

The images on the left are only a small selection. Please enjoy exploring all the galleries and feel free to contact me with any question you may have.

Guestbook for Photography by Kirsten Messmer
3.John King(non-registered)
A pleasure meeting you today at Cape May National Wildlife Refuge! I hope you got some good photos today, and that you made it to the State Park for some late afternoon shots. Come back again and visit us again soon.
1.Steve Talabac(non-registered)
Kirsten... Let me be the first to say that your new Zenfolio site is coming along very nicely! Glad you decided to create a site to display your work. Needless to say I will look forward to viewing more of your recent photos of the FL Everglades scenery and wildlife, and many more images I'm sure from photo outings yet to come.
