A message from the artist:

GREETINGS!
MY NAME IS SETH WALTEMIRE AND I AM A LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER CURRENTLY RESIDING IN AIRVILLE, PA. MY PASSIONS IN LIFE ARE TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS AND TAKING CARE OF CHICKENS AT MY HOME. I FEED THEM EVERY MORNING AND WHEN THEY LAY EGGS I SELL THEM TO THE COMMUNITY. I ENJOY THE OUTDOORS A LOT AND SPEND MUCH OF MY SPARE TIME WITH MY DAD AND BROTHERS FISHING FOR BASS AND WALLEYE AT PLACES SUCH AS THE SUSQUEHANNA RIVER AND PORT DEPOSIT. MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY BEGAN WHEN MY MOTHER GAVE ME HER SONY DIGITAL CAMERA WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. I IMMEDIATELY ENJOYED TAKING PICTURES OF WILDLIFE SUCH AS TURKEY AND DEER OR ANYTHING INTERESTING I COULD FIND OUTDOORS. AFTER MY MOM PASSED AWAY ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO I DECIDED I WANT TO CONTINUE MAKING HER PROUD BY DOING ALL I CAN TO BECOME SUCCESFUL AT WHAT I DO- INCLUDING SHARING MY PHOTOGRAPHS WITH THE PUBLIC AND HOPEFULLY MAKING SOME XTRA MONEY IN THE PROCESS. IM GRATEFUL TO THE STAFF AT QUARRYVILLE LIBRARY FOR GIVING ME THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY WORK WITH YOU. YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

SINCERELY, SETH
